Hymn/Song Information

Come unto Me when shadows darkly




Come unto Me,
when shadows darkly gather,
When the sad heart
is weary and distressed;
Seeking for comfort
from your heavenly Father,
Come unto Me,
and I will give you rest.


Ye who have mourned when
the spring flowers were taken
When the ripe fruit
fell richly to the ground,
When the loved slept,
in brighter homes to waken,
Where their pale brows
with spirit-wreaths are crowned,


Large are the mansions
in thy Fatherís dwelling;
Glad are the homes
that sorrows never dim;
Sweet are the harps
in holy music swelling;
Soft are the tones
which raise the heavenly hymn.


There, like an Eden
blossoming in gladness,
Bloom the fair flowers
the earth too rudely pressed;
Come unto Me,
all ye who droop in sadness,
Come unto Me,
and I will give you rest.
