HOW gracious the promise, how soothing the word
That came from the lips of our merciful Lord!
Ye lone and ye weary, ye sad and oppressed,
Come, learn of your Saviour, and ye shall find rest.

And ye that have sinned and have wandered astray,
Come, walk in the light, and the truth, and the way;
Ye proud, from the paths of ambition depart,
For meek was your Master, and lowly of heart.
