613. Come, Ye Disconsolate

1 Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish;
come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel;
here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

2 Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure,
here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

3 Here see the Bread of Life; see waters flowing
forth from the throne of God, pure from above;
come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
