S. F. STREETER. Come unto me, and I will give you Rest.' 1 How gracious the promise, how soothing the

word. That came from the lips of our merciful Lord ! Ye lone and ye weary, ye sad and oppressed,, Come, learn of your Savior, and ye shall find

rest.'

2 Ye heart-stricken sóns and ye daughters of woe,

For you the fresh fountains of comfort o'erflow;
Your souls to the blessed Redeemer unite,

His yoke it is easy, his burden is light. 3 And ye that have sinned and have wandered Come, walk in the light, and the truth, and the

way ; Ye proud, from the paths of ambition depart, For meek was your Master, and lowly of heart.
