From the Gadsby Hymnal #1109

by A. Steele


1    Come, weary souls, with sin distressed,

      Come and accept the promised rest;

      The gospel’s gracious call obey,

      And cast your gloomy fears away.

2    Oppressed with guilt (a painful load),

      O come and spread your woes abroad,

      Divine compassion, mighty love,

      Will all the painful load remove.

3    Here mercy’s boundless ocean flows,

      To cleanse your guilt, and heal your woes;

      Pardon, and life, and endless peace;

      How rich the gift, how free the grace!

4    Dear Savior, let thy powerful love

      Confirm our faith, our fears remove;

      Forgiveness shed through every breast,

      And guide us to eternal rest.
