Come close to the Savior


Come close to the Savior, thy loving Redeemer,
O sorrowing heart oppressed (sorely oppressed);
Lifeís journey is dreary, thy spirit is weary;
O come unto Him and rest.
Come close to the Savior, O why dost thou linger?
He knoweth thy heart oppressed (sorely oppressed).
His promise believing, His message receiving,
O come unto Him and rest.
Refrain

Peacefully, tranquilly, tenderly rest,
Folding thy wings like a dove,
Peacefully, tranquilly, tenderly rest,
Safe in the arms of His love.

Come close to the Savior, He calleth thee gently,
Draw near to thy Fatherís throne (thy Fatherís throne);
His eyes will behold thee, His mercy enfold thee,
Why carry thy grief alone?
Come close to the Savior, O trust and remember,
Throí trials our souls are blest (richly are blest).
Whatever betide thee, thy Refuge will hide thee,
O come unto Him and rest.

Refrain

Come close to the Savior, earthís pleasures are fleeting,
But Jesus will care for thee (Heíll care for thee);
Whatever may grieve thee, He never will leave thee,
Thy strength as thy day shall be.
Come close to the Savior, O come as a birdling
Flies back to its parent nest (flies to its nest).
Where peace like a river, flows onward forever,
O come unto Him and rest.

Refrain
