All ye who seek a certain cure

All ye who seek a certain cure
in trouble and distress,
whatever sorrow vex the mind,
or guilt the soul oppress:

Jesus, who gave himself for you
upon the Cross to die,
opens to you his sacred heart:
O to that heart draw nigh!

Ye hear how kindly he invites;
ye hear his words so blest;
"All ye that labor, come to me,
and I will give you rest."

What meeker than the Savior's heart?
As on the cross he lay,
it did his murderers forgive,
and for their pardon pray.

O heart! thou joy of saints on high!
thou hope of sinners here!
Attracted by those loving words,
to thee I lift my prayer.

Wash thou my wounds in that dear blood
which forth from thee doth flow;
new grace, new hope inspire;
a new and better heart bestow.
