	1. Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish,
	Come to the Mercy-seat, fervently kneel.
	Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
	Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
	2. Joy of the desolate, Light of the straying,
	Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure;
	Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
	Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot cure.
	3. Here see the Bread of Life; see waters flowing
	Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
	Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
	Earth has no sorrow but Heaven can remove.
