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
