Full Text

1 Weary, oh, yes, thou art weary,
Bearing thy burden of sin;
Clouds of the night are above thee,
Fear the temptation within.

Refrain:
Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Pleading with thee, pleading with thee.
Hear the sweet voice that is pleading with thee,
Tenderly pleading with thee.

2 Lonely, oh, yes, thou art lonely,
Plodding thy desolate way,
Far from the arms that would shield thee,
Far from the light and the day. [Refrain]

3 Troubled, oh, yes, thou art troubled;
Comfort has flown from thy breast;
Only in Jesus thy refuge,
Only in him is thy rest. [Refrain]

4 Weary and lonely and troubled,
Broken in spirit and heart,
Come to thy gracious Redeemer;
Child of his mercy thou art. [Refrain]
