Come unto Me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.@Matthew 11:28

Mrs. E. M. Bohne, 1899.

Coa­hui­la Os­car A. Mi­ller, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Weary and worn, I long for rest—
Close Thou my eyes in sleep;
O let me lie upon Thy breast,
My rest in Thee complete!

Give me that inner consciousness
Of Thine exceeding peace,
And from all sorrow, grief and pain
Shall come a sweet release.

Then in the morning gird anew
My soul with strength divine;
The word of Thy salvation be
Assurance I am Thine!

Choose Thou the path in life for me,
And lead me by Thy hand;
May every impulse of my soul
Respond to Thy command.
