Hymn/Song Information

When the weary seeking rest To thy good




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:

Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry
In heav'n, thy dwelling place on high.



When the stranger asks a home,
All his toils to end;
When the hungry craveth food,
And the poor a friend;
When the widow weeps to thee,
Sad and lone and low;
When the orphan brings to thee
All his orphan woe:

Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry
In heav'n, thy dwelling place on high.



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:

Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry
In heav'n, thy dwelling place on high.



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:

Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry
In heav'n, thy dwelling place on high.



---Alternative verses---


When the child, with grave fresh lips,
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:

Hear then in love, O Lord, the cry
In heav'n, thy dwelling place on high.
