Come to Me

From Matthew 11:28:  “Come to Me, all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Weary, come to Me

Taking time to rest


Hearts filled with darkness

Hearing voice of Christ


Forgiveness granted

Pardoning with peace


Today fills with joy

Tasting Savior’s love




Drifters, come to Me

Seeking light of faith


Nighttime becomes day

Hearing voice of Christ


Hearts filled with sadness

Looking for His Word


Morning shares its grace

Flowing from our Lord




Sinners, come to Me

Welcoming each one


Doubt now shrinks away

Hearing voice of Christ


True freedom now rings

Calling us back home


Unworthy, no more

Trusting Christ, the King
