Somebody’s here with an aching heart,
No rest and no peace within;
Somebody’s here, and the teardrops start,
As God convicts of sin.


Jesus will give you rest,
Jesus will give you rest;
Turn from your sin, call now on Him,
For Jesus will give you rest.

Somebody’s here with a burdened soul,
A heart that’s inclined to pray;
Seeking for cleansing, for peace and power,
To you doth the Spirit say:


Somebody’s here whom the Lord doth seek,
That somebody may be you;
Come as you are, and make no delay,
And prove every promise true.


Somebody’s waiting to hear the news,
The glorious Gospel sound;
Jesus has died to save all from sin;
Go tell it all around!
