Come All You Weary – performed Thrice

Come all you weary with your heavy loads
Lay down your burdens, find rest for your souls
‘Cause my yoke is easy and my burden is kind
I’ll take yours upon me and you can take mine

Come all you weary who move through the Earth
You’ve been spurned at fine restaurants and kicked out of church
I’ve got a couple of loaves, so sit down at my feet
Lend me your ears and we’ll break bread and eat

Come all you weary
Come gather ’round near me
Find rest for your souls

Come all you weary, crippled you lay
I’ll help you along, you can lay down your canes
We’ve got a long way to go, but we’ll travel as friends
The light’s growing bright, further up, further in

Come all you weary
Come gather ’round near me
Find rest for your souls
Rest for your souls

Come all you weary
Come gather ’round near me
Come all you weary
Come gather ’round near me
Find rest for your souls
Rest for your souls
Rest for your souls
Rest for your souls.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel – performed by Selah

1 O come, O come, Immanuel,
and ransom captive Israel
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

Refrain:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel
shall come to you, O Israel.

2 O come, O Wisdom from on high,
who ordered all things mightily;
to us the path of knowledge show
and teach us in its ways to go. Refrain

3 O come, O come, great Lord of might,
who to your tribes on Sinai’s height
in ancient times did give the law
in cloud and majesty and awe. Refrain

4 O come, O Branch of Jesse’s stem,
unto your own and rescue them!
From depths of hell your people save,
and give them victory o’er the grave. Refrain

5 O come, O Key of David, come
and open wide our heavenly home.
Make safe for us the heavenward road
and bar the way to death’s abode. Refrain

6 O come, O Bright and Morning Star,
and bring us comfort from afar!
Dispel the shadows of the night
and turn our darkness into light. Refrain

7 O come, O King of nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind.
Bid all our sad divisions cease
and be yourself our King of Peace. Refrain
