    Come unto Jesus

    Gently

    1. Come unto Jesus, ye heavy laden,

    Careworn and fainting, by sin oppressed.

    He’ll safely guide you unto that haven

    Where all who trust him may rest.

    2. Come unto Jesus; He’ll ever heed you,

    Though in the darkness you’ve gone astray.

    His love will find you and gently lead you

    From darkest night into day.

    3. Come unto Jesus; He’ll surely hear you,

    If you in meekness plead for his love.

    Oh, know you not that angels are near you

    From brightest mansions above?

    4. Come unto Jesus from ev’ry nation,

    From ev’ry land and isle of the sea.

    Unto the high and lowly in station,

    Ever he calls, “Come to me.”
