1

YOME unto Me, ye weary,

And I will give you rest:
O blessed voice of Jesus

Which comes to hearts oppressed!
It tells of benediction,
Of pardon, grace,

and

love which can - not cease.

A- men,

TE

peace, Of joy that hath no ending,

Of 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 “Come unto Me, ye fainting,

And I will give you life:”-
O cheering voice of Jesus

Which comes to aid our strife!
The foe is stern and eager,

The fight is fierce and long;
But Thou hast made us mighty,

And stronger than the strong.
4 “And whosoever cometh

I will not cast him out:
O welcome voice of Jesus

Which drives away our doubt,
Which calls us, very sinners,

Unworthy though we be
Of love so free and boundless,
To come, dear Lord, to Thee!

William C. Dix, 1867

SHOW
YHOW me myself, O holy Lord,

Help me to look within;
I will not turn me from the sight

Of all my sin.

2 Not mine the purity of heart,

That shall at last see God;
Not mine the following in the steps

The Saviour trod;

3 Not mine the life I thought to live

When first I took His name; Mine but the right to weep and grieve

Over my shame.

4 Yet, Lord, I thank Thee for the sight

Thou hast vouchsafed to me; And, humbled to the dust, I shrink

Closer to Thee.

5 And if Thy love will not disown

So frail a heart as mine,
Chasten and cleanse it as Thou wilt,
But keep it Thine.

Anon, 1893

ONE

NE thing I of the Lord desire,

For all my way hath miry been, Be it by water or by fire,

O make me clean!

2 If clearer vision Thou impart,

Grateful and glad my soul shall be, But yet to have a purer heart

Is more to me.

3 Yea, only as the heart is clean

May larger vision yet be mine, For mirrored in its depths are seen

The things divine.

4 I watch to shun the miry way,

And stanch the spring of guilty thought; But, watch and wrestle as I may,

Pure I am not.

5 So, wash Thou me without, within,

Or purge with fire, if that must be, -
No matter how, if only sin
Die out in me.

Walter C. Smith, 1887
