1  Come hither all ye weary souls,
Ye heavy laden sinners come,
I'll give you rest from all your toils,
And raise you to my heav'nly home.

2  They shall find rest that learn of me:
I'm of a meek and lowly mind;
But passion rages like the sea,
And pride is restless as the wind.

3  Bless'd is the man whose shoulders take
My yoke, and bear it with delight;
My yoke is easy to his neck,
My grace shall make the burden light.

4  Jesus, we come at thy command,
With faith, and hope, and humble zeal,
Resign our spirits to thy hand,
To mould and guide us at thy will.
