Come and rest
Come and rest now
Lay your sorrows on His Blessed Altar
come and rest in the arms of Jesus
come and rest
Lay your sorrows on His Holy Altar
come and rest in the arms of Jesus

come and rest in the Love that frees us
lay your sorrows up upon His Eternal Altar
come and rest
come and rest now In the arms of Jesus
O come and rest
lay your sorrows on His Altar
