ART thou weary, art thou languid,

By A Collection of Hymns

      8 5, 8 3. Matthew xi. 28.
      1 ART thou weary, art thou languid,
      Art thou sore distrest?
      "Come to me," saith One, "and coming
      Be at rest!"

      2 Hath he marks to lead me to him,
      If he be my guide?
      "In his feet and hands are wound-prints,
      And his side."

      3 Hath he diadem as monarch
      That his brow adorns?
      "Yea, a crown, in very surety,
      But of thorns!"

      4 If I find him, if I follow,
      What his guerdon here?
      "Many a sorrow, many a labour,
      Many a tear."

      5 If I still hold closely to him,
      What hath he at last?
      "Sorrow vanquished, labour ended,
      Jordan past."

      6 If I ask him to receive me,
      Will he say me nay?
      "Not till earth, and not till heaven
      Pass away."
