1  Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish,
Come to the mercy-seat, fervently kneel;
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth hath no sorrows that heaven cannot heal.

2  Joy of the desolate, Light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
Earth hath no sorrows that heaven cannot cure.

3  Here see the Bread of Life; see waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above:
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth hath no sorrows but heaven can remove.

1. Komm, tief betrübte Seel, lass dich erquicken!
Für dich auf Golgatha floss heilges Blut.
Flieh, flieh die arge Welt, kehr ihr den Rücken,
ringe zum Himmel, da ist's ewig gut!

2. Seele, dein Heiland ruft: „Ich will dich retten“;
Komm an sein liebend Herz, klag ihm dein Leid;
„Komm ich erlöse dich, brech deine Ketten,
kehre dein Leiden in himmlische Freud!“

3. Wandrer des Erdentals, willst du nicht ziehen
mit uns ins bessre Land, wo Jesu wohnt?
Bald fühlst du Himmeslust, bald siehst du glühen
Strahlen der Sonne, in welchen Gott thront.
