Eben E. Rexford (1848–1916)


Ye who wander, of sin grown wea­ry,
Lonely and far from the safe home-fold,
Come and learn what the love of Christ is,
Love whose glad­ness can ne’er be told.


O, how you’ll love Him when you know Him!
Know the Christ who died to set you free;
On Calv’ry’s cross His heart was brok­en,
Broken there for you, for me!

Come, and com­ing, find peace and par­don
Waiting for you at the place of pray­er;
Kneel and ask for a soul for­giv­en,
Christ is yearn­ing to meet you there.


You should know of this love so ten­der,
Love that is stead­fast, and deep, and true;
Come and share in its sweet­ness with me,
Come, and find that my Christ loves you.


Come, and find that you can­not fa­thom
Love like Christ’s till you taste and see;
Height and depths of the love of Je­sus
No man knows till it sets Him free.
