Songs sung over a fasting city

Come, ye disconsolate[Track 8]

Come, ye disconsolate, where’er you 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.

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.”

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.

***

Come, Ye Souls [Track 2]

Come, ye souls by sin afflicted,

Bowed with fruitless sorrow down

By the broken law convicted

Through the cross behold the crown

Look to Jesus—mercy flows through Him alone

Take His easy yoke and wear it

Love will make obedience sweet

Christ will give you strength to bear it,

While His wisdom guides your feet

Safe to glory, where His ransomed captives meet

Blessed are the eyes that see Him,

Blest the ears that hear His voice

Blessed are the souls that trust Him,

And in Him alone rejoice

His commandments then become their

happy choice

Sweet as home to pilgrims weary,

Light to newly opened eyes

Or full springs in deserts dreary

Is the rest the cross supplies

All who taste it shall to rest immortal rise
