Come!

Come! I Will Give You Rest

Matthew 11:28, 29

Come! I will give you rest,

Rest from your every care;

Come as you are, oppressed

With weakness and despair.

Come! I will give you rest,

Rest from the ceaseless strife;

Rest from the fear of death,

Rest from the din of life.

Come! I will rest impart,

Rest after toil and pain,

Rest to each trembling heart

Burdened with sin and shame.

Come ! ye with guilt oppressed,

Great though your burden be;

Come ! I will give you rest,

Rest built on pardon free.

Come! whosoever will,

No one will I deny;

Come! I will give to all

Rest which shall satisfy.

Come! I will give you rest,

Rest in contentment sweet;

Come! as a welcome guest,

Rest at your Saviour’s feet.

Come! I will give you rest,

Rest from the weight of woe,

Rest from the weary quest

For happiness below.

Come! I will give you rest,

Where earthly conflicts cease;

Rest on a Saviour’s breast,

Rest in the paths of peace.

Come! I will give you rest,

Rest in a Father’s love,

Rest in the mansions blest,

Rest in your home above.
