Lyrics

Sweetly the Savior’s voice is ever calling,
Come unto Me! Come unto Me!
See, shadows dark around you now are falling,
Come unto Me!

Refrain

Jesus, the Lord of all, Oh, hear His loving call:
Come unto Me, all ye weary ones, oh come!
Come unto Me! Come unto Me!
Come, all ye weary ones, no longer roam.

Long have I sought you lost in darkness dreary,
Come unto Me! Come unto Me!
I am the refuge waiting for the weary,
Come unto Me!

Refrain

Here is the rest that I alone can give you,
Come unto Me! Come unto Me!
Come, for My heart is longing to forgive you,
Come unto Me!

Refrain

Jesus, forsaking all that would deceive us,
Come we to Thee! Come we to Thee!
Safe in Thy loving arms, O Lord, receive us,
Coming to Thee!
