Lyrics

  1. 1. Lean on my ample arm,
    O thou depressed!
    And I will bid the storm
    Cease in thy breast.
    Whate'er thy lot may be
    On life's complaining sea,
    If thou wilt come to me,
    Thou shalt have rest.
    If thou wilt come to me,
    Thou shalt have rest.
  2. 2. Lift up thy tearful eyes,
    Sad heart, to me;
    I am the sacrifice
    Offered for thee.
    In me thy pain shall cease,
    In me is thy release,
    In me thou shalt have peace
    Eternally.
    In me thou shalt have peace
    Eternally.
  3. Text: Theodore E. Curtis, 1872-1957
    Music: Evan Stephens, 1854-1930
