Hymn/Song Information

Ah whither should I go Burdened and sick




Ah whither should I go,
Burdened, and sick, and faint?
To whom should I my troubles show,
And pour out my complaint?


My Saviour bids me come,
Ah! why do I delay?
He calls the weary sinner home,
And yet from him I stay!


What is it keeps me back,
From which I cannot part,
Which will not let my Saviour take,
Possession of my heart?


Some cursed thing unknown
Must surely lurk within,
Some idol, which I will not own,
Some secret bosom-sin.


Jesu, the hindrance show,
Which I have feared to see:
Yet let me now consent to know
What keeps me out of thee:


Searcher of hearts, in mine
Thy trying power display;
Into its darkest corners shine,
And take the veil away.


I now believe in thee
Compassion reigns alone;
According to my faith to me
O let it, Lord, be done!


In me is all the bar,
Which thou wouldst fain remove;
Remove it, and I shall declare
That God is only love.

Jesus, the hindrance show,
Which I have feared to see:
Yet let me now consent to know
What keeps me back from thee:
