#239: Art Thou Weary?

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Art thou weary, art thou languid, Art thou sore distrest?

“Come to Me,” saith One, “and, coming, Be at rest.”

2

Hath He marks to lad me to Him, If He be my Guide?

“In His feet and hands are wound-prints, And His side.”

3

Is there diadem, as Monarch, That His brow adorns?

“Yea, a crown, in very surety, But of thorns.”

4

If I still hold closely to Him, What hath He at last?

“Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, Jordan passed.”

5

If I ask Him to receive me, Will He say me nay?

“Not till earth and not till heaven Pass away.”

6

Finding, foll’wing keeping, struggling, Is He sure to bless?

Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs Answer, “Yes.”
