Lyrics: .
1. O ye that are weary and laden of soul,
Now come to the fountain that maketh you whole;
There is peace in believing, there’s rest in His name,
There’s healing for all in the blood of the Lamb.

2. Oh, cease from your anguish, ye toilers for life,
For vain is your labour and fruitless your strife;
No hope can they bring you, no joy to your heart;
For none but the Saviour can resting impart.

3. Then come to the Saviour, ye weary and worn,
Your burdens and sorrows for you He hath borne;
No anguish that pierceth but pierced Him before,
No thorn is so sharp as the crown which He wore.

4. My rest, blessed Saviour! oh, sweet rest at last,
Like calm on the ocean when tempest is past:
The morning light breaketh in joy from above,
And lighteth my soul with His rainbow of love!
