    Lean on My Ample Arm

    Expressively

    1. Lean on my ample arm,

    O thou depressed!

    And I will bid the storm

    Cease in thy breast.

    Whate’er thy lot may be

    On life’s complaining sea,

    If thou wilt come to me,

    Thou shalt have rest.

    If thou wilt come to me,

    Thou shalt have rest.

    2. Lift up thy tearful eyes,

    Sad heart, to me;

    I am the sacrifice

    Offered for thee.

    In me thy pain shall cease,

    In me is thy release,

    In me thou shalt have peace

    Eternally.

    In me thou shalt have peace

    Eternally.
