GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 31

STANZA 1
Art thou weary? Heavy laden?
Art thou sore distress?
“Come to me,” saith one; “and coming, Be at rest!”

STANZA 2
Hath he marks to lead me to Him,
If he be my Guide?
“In His feet and hands are wound prints, And His side.”

STANZA 3
Is there diadem as Monarch
That his brow adorns?
“Yes, a crown kin very surety, But of thorns.”

STANZA 4
If I find Him, if I follow,
What his guerdon here?
“Many sorrow, many labour, Many tear.”

STANZA 5
If I still hold closely to Him,
What hath He at last?
“Sorrow vanquished, labour ended, Jordan passed.”

STANZA 6
If I ask Him to receive me,
Will He say me nay?
“Not till earth, and not till heaven, Pass away.”

STANZA 7
Finding, follow, keeping, struggling,
Is He sure to bless?
“Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs, Answer Yes!”
