Lyrics: . <br/>1. O ye that are weary and laden of soul, <br/>Now come to the fountain that maketh you whole; <br/>There is peace in believing, there’s rest in His name, <br/>There’s healing for all in the blood of the Lamb. <br/> <br/>2. Oh, cease from your anguish, ye toilers for life, <br/>For vain is your labour and fruitless your strife; <br/>No hope can they bring you, no joy to your heart; <br/>For none but the Saviour can resting impart. <br/> <br/>3. Then come to the Saviour, ye weary and worn, <br/>Your burdens and sorrows for you He hath borne; <br/>No anguish that pierceth but pierced Him before, <br/>No thorn is so sharp as the crown which He wore. <br/> <br/>4. My rest, blessed Saviour! oh, sweet rest at last, <br/>Like calm on the ocean when tempest is past: <br/>The morning light breaketh in joy from above, <br/>And lighteth my soul with His rainbow of love!
