Lyrics

Are you bowed with grief and care?
Give your heart to Jesus;
He will all your sorrows share,
Give your heart to Jesus.

Refrain

Give your heart to Him today,
He will wash your sins away,
He who died on Calvary,
Waits to save both you and me.

Is your pathway dark and drear?
Give your heart to Jesus;
He will bring the sunshine clear,
Give your heart to Jesus.

Refrain

Come, O weary one, oppressed,
Give your heart to Jesus;
He will give you peace and rest,
Give your heart to Jesus.

Refrain

He will clasp you by the hand,
Give your heart to Jesus;
Lead you to the heav’nly land,
Give your heart to Jesus.
