Original text and translations
1 Come, ye souls by sin afflicted,
Bowed with fruitless sorrow down,
By the broken Law convicted,
Through the Cross behold the crown;
Look to Jesus;
Mercy flows through him alone.
2 Blessed are the eyes that see him,
Blest the ears that hear his voice;
Blessed are the souls that trust him
And in him alone rejoice;
Then become their happy choice.
3 Take his easy yoke and wear it;
Love will make obedience sweet;
Christ will give you strength to bear it,
While his wisdom guides your feet.
Safe to glory,
Where his ransomed captives meet.
4 Sweet as home to pilgrims weary,
Light to newly opened eyes,
Or full springs in deserts dreary,
Is the rest the Cross supplies;
All who taste it
Shall to rest immortal rise.
