Come unto Me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.@Matthew 11:28

Joseph H. Martin, in Great Joy!, edited by William W. Bentley et al. (Cincinnati, Ohio: George D. Newhall, 1881).

Come, weary souls, by sin oppressed,
On Christ the Son believe,
And He will give you peace and rest;
Salvation you’ll receive.

Refrain

Come unto Me, the Savior cries,
And I will give you rest.
The soul that on My grace relies
Shall be with comfort blest.

He’s borne your load of sin and guilt,
Your debt He’s kindly paid;
His precious blood He freely spilt,
A full atonement made.

Refrain

His yoke receive with humble heart,
And bear it with delight;
Rest, peace and joy He will impart,
He’ll make your burden light.
