Lyrics

Come unto Me, ye weary,
Sorrowing ones oppressed;
I am your tender Shepherd,
Waiting to give you rest.

Refrain

Come, come, come unto Me,
Weary and sore distressed;
Come, come, come unto Me,
Come unto Me and rest.

Come unto Me, ye weary.
List to the voice so dear,
Sweeter than angel music,
Falling upon the ear.

Refrain

Come unto Me, ye weary,
List to that voice again,
Over the barren mountain,
Over the lonely plain.

Refrain

Come unto Me, ye weary,
Why will ye longer roam:
Come to the arms of mercy,
Come to a Father’s home.
