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

Frank E. Wilder, 1907. Appeared in Hallowed Hymns New and Old, by I. Allan Sankey (New York/Chicago, Illinois: Biglow & Main, 1909), number 28 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I have wandered so long
Midst the pleasures of earth,
Spread around me in dazzling array;
But a still voice divine
Speaks to this heart of mine,
Bidding me to turn back today.

Refrain

And I may be saved, even I may be saved,
Oh, what mercy, Lord, how can it be?
Jesus suffered and died,
On the cross crucified,
Just to save a poor sinner like me.

Shall I list to that voice,
Shall I turn from the way,
That my footsteps have followed so long?
Still He tenderly calls,
Come, oh, come unto Me,
All ye weary
of sin and wrong.

Refrain

Can it be that my life
Can be made pure and clean,
By the blood shed on Calvary’s tree?
But His promise is plain,
He will cleanse every stain,
From the heart that accepts His plea.

Refrain

Jesus, come to me now,
Take me just as I am,
All my sin, all my will I resign;
To be guided by Thee,
Is sufficient for me,
Just to know that Thy love is mine.

Refrain
