1. Is there a heart o’er-bound by sorrow?

Is there a life weighed down by care?

Come to the cross, each burden bearing,

All your anxiety – leave it there

All your anxiety, all your care,

Bring to the Mercy, seat, and leave it there;

Never a burden He cannot bear,

Never a Friend like Jesus.

2. No other Friend so keen to help you;

No other Friend quick to hear;

No other place to leave your burden;

No other one to hear your prayer.

3. Come then, at once, delay no longer;

Heed His entreaty, Kind and sweet;

You need not fear a disappointment;

You shall find peace at the mercy seat

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
