Come My Child
I hear Him calling, "Come, My child,
To the table I have spread.
Partake of the heavenly manna;
Come, eat of My life-giving Bread.
"New strength to walk each day alone
I will impart to thee,
If only thou wilt yield thy life,
Give all thine heart to Me.
"I long to love thee freely, child,
To share My treasures rare,
That thou mightest know assuredly
Thy God for thee doth care.
"Withhold not thou thine heart, dear child,
From My abiding peace.
Such love I have to offer thee
Shall never, never cease.
"Release thy worries all to Me;
Remove each weight of care.
Remember that I died for thee
And did thy burdens bear.
"Come unto Me and rest, My child.
The night is drawing near;
But I shall be thy Light and Life.
Thou hast no need to fear."
