Hear the promise of the Lord,
As recorded in His word,
Unto you is everlasting life!
Heavy laden and distressed,
Come, and I will give you rest,
Unto you is everlasting life!

Refrain

Everlasting life, the promise reads,
While at God’s right hand the Savior pleads;
Will you come today, making Christ your stay?
For with Him is everlasting life.

Little children on the road
To the city of our God,
Unto you is everlasting life!
If on Jesus you believe,
And His blessèd word receive,
Unto you is everlasting life!

Refrain

Cast on Him your load of care,
Jesus will your burden bear,
Unto you is everlasting life!
In the straight and narrow way
He will lead you day by day!
Unto you is everlasting life!

Refrain
