Hymn 255
When the weary, seeking rest

1 When the weary, seeking rest, To Thy goodness flee; When the heavy laden cast All their load on Thee; When the troubled, seeking peace, On Thy name shall call; When the sinner, seeking life, At Thy feet shall fall: Refrain Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry In Heav’n, Thy dwelling place on high. 2 When the child, with grave fresh lip, Youth, or maiden fair, When the agèd, weak and grey, Seek Thy face in prayer; When the widow weeps to Thee, Sad and lone and low; When the orphan brings to Thee All his orphan woe: Refrain 3 When the stranger asks a home, All his toils to end; When the hungry craveth food, And the poor a friend; When the sailor on the wave Bows the fervent knee; When the soldier on the field Lifts his heart to Thee: Refrain 4 When the man of toil and care, In the city crowd, When the shepherd on the moor, Names the name of God; When the learnèd and the high Tired of earthly fame, Upon higher joys intent, Name the blessèd name: Refrain 5 When the worldling, sick at heart, Lifts his soul above; When the prodigal looks back To his Father’s love; When the proud man, in his pride, Stoops to seek Thy face; When the burdened brings his guilt To Thy throne of grace: Refrain
