1. Come, ye disconsolate, where'er you languish,
Come, at the mercy seat fervently kneel;
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish,
Earth hath no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

2. Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope, when all others die, fadeless and pure;
Here speaks the Comforter, in mercy saying,
"Earth hath no sorrow that Heaven cannot cure."

3. Author of holiness! source of salvation!
Thou art our fathers' God—thou art our stay!
Bringing our grateful hearts in adoration,
Here we will praise thee, and here we will pray.
