3587 6. 7 6. D
‘COME unto Me, ye weary,
   And I will give you rest.’
O gracious voice of Jesus,
    Which comes to hearts oppressed;
It tells of free forgiveness,
    Of pardon, life, and peace,
Of joy that has no ending,
    And love which cannot cease.
2  ‘Come unto Me, ye wanderers,
    And I will give you light.’
O loving voice of Jesus,
    Which comes to cheer the night;
Our hearts were filled with sadness,
    And we had lost our way;
But morning brings us gladness,
    And songs the break of day.
3  ‘And whosoever cometh
    I will not cast him out.’
O welcome voice of Jesus
    Which drives away our doubt:
Which calls us, wayward sinners,
    Unworthy though we be
Of love so free and boundless,
    To come, dear Lord, to Thee.
William Chatterton Dix, 1837-98
