Jesus, my Saviour, look on me,
For I am weary and oppressed;
I come to cast myself on thee:
Thou are my Rest.

Look down on us, for we are weak;
We feel the toilsome journey's length;
Thine aid omnipotent we seek:
Thou art our strength.

And when I stand on Jordan's brink,
In that tremendous latest strife,
Thou wilt not suffer me to sink:
Thou art my Life.

Thou wilt our every want supply,
Even to the end, whatever befall;
Through life, in death, eternally,
Thou art our life, Thou art our All.
