1.      Hear the blessed Saviour calling the oppressed,

        “O ye heavy laden, come to Me and rest;

       Come, no longer tarry, I your load will bear,

      Bring Me ev’ry burden, bring Me ev’ry care.”

     Come unto Me; I will give you rest;

     Take My yoke upon you, hear Me and be blest;

     I am meek and lowly, Come and trust My might;

    Come, My yoke is easy, come my burden’s light.

2.  Are you disappointed, wand’ring here and there,

    Dragging chains of doubt and loaded down with care?

    Do unholy feelings struggle in your breast?

    Bring your case to Jesus, He will give you rest.

3.  Stumbling on the mountains dark with sin and shame,

     Stumbling tow’rd the pit of hell’s consuming flames,

    By the pow’rs of sin deluded and oppressed,

   Hear the tender Shepherd, “Come to Me and rest”

4.  Have you cares of business, cares of pressing debt?

    Cares of social life or cares of hopes unmet?

    Are you by remorse or sense of guilt depressed,

    Come right on to Jesus, He will give you rest.

5.   Have you by temptations often conquered been,

     Has a sense of weakness brought distress within?

    Christ will sanctify you, if you”ll claim His best,

   In the Holy Spirit, He will give you rest.

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)
