1 Come, weary souls, by sin oppressed,
On Christ the Son believe,
And He will give you peace and rest;
Salvation you’ll receive.

"Come unto Me," the Savior cries,
"And I will give you rest.
The soul that on My grace relies
Shall be with comfort blest."

2 He’s borne your load of sin and guilt,
Your debt He’s kindly paid;
His precious blood He freely spilt,
A full atonement made. [Refrain]

3 His yoke receive with humble heart,
And bear it with delight;
Rest, peace and joy He will impart,
He’ll make your burden light. [Refrain]
