"Art Thou Weary, Art Thou Troubled" by John M. Neale, 1818-1866 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942) p. 358 1. Art thou weary, art thou troubled, Art thou sore distressed? "Come to Me," saith One, "and, coming, Be at rest." 2. Hath He marks to lead me to Him If He be my Guide? "In His feet and hands are wound-prints, And His side." 3. Hath He diadem, as Monarch, That His brow adorns? "Yea, a crown, in very surety, But of thorns." 4. If I find Him, if I follow, What His guerdon here? "Many a sorrow, many a labor, Many a tear." 5. If I still hold closely to Him, What hath He at last? "Sorrow vanquished, labor ended, Jordan passed." 6. If I ask Him to receive me, Will He say me nay? "Not till earth and not till heaven Pass away." 7. Finding, following, keeping, struggling, Is He sure to bless? "Saints, apostles, prophets, martyrs, Answer, Yes."This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Cindy A.
