Come To Me – Hymns of Dawn No.3

Come To Me – Hymns of Dawn No. 3

 

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30, ESV).

Lyrics

1.
Ah! my heart is heavy laden,
Weary and oppressed.
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.
Is there diadem, as monarch,
That his brow adorns?
Yes, a crown in very surety,
But of thorns!

4.
If I find him, if I follow,
What’s my portion here?
Many a sorrow, many a conflict,
Many a tear.

5.
If I still hold closely to him,
What have I at last?
Sorrow vanquished, labor 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!

Original AuthorStephen of Mar Sabas (725-794); also titled as Stephen the Sabaite.

Abide, Sweet Spirit – Hymns of Dawn No. 1

Abide, Sweet Spirit – Hymns of Dawn No. 1

Lyrics

1.
Abide, sweet Spirit, heav’nly Dove,
With light and comfort from above;
Be thou our guardian, thou our guide;
O’er ev’ry thought and step preside.

2.
To us the light of truth display,
And make us know and choose thy way;
Plant holy fear in ev’ry heart,
That we from God may ne’er depart.

3.
Lead us in holiness, the road
Which we must keep to dwell with God;
Lead us in Christ, the living way;
Nor let us from his pastures stray.

4.
Teach us in watchfulness and prayer
To wait for thine appointed hour;
And fit us by thy grace to share
The triumphs of thy conq’ring pow’r.

Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him all creatures here below;
Praise Him aloud with heart and voice,
And always in His Son rejoice.
