Come, ye weary, heavy laden,
bruised and broken by the fall
If you tarry ’til you‘re better,
you will never come at all

Now is the season of Lent.

Lent is the 40 days (not including Sundays) from Ash Wednesday to the Saturday before Easter. Lent is often described as a time of preparation and an opportunity to go deeper with God. This means that it’s a time for personal reflection that prepares people’s hearts and minds for Good Friday and Easter.

First Sunday of Lent…

Not what my hands have done 

can save my guilty soul;

Not what my toiling flesh has borne 

can make my spirit whole.

Not what I feel or do 

can give me peace with God;

Not all my prayers and sighs and tears 

can bear my awful load.

Thy work alone, O Christ, 

can ease this weight of sin;

Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God, 

can give me peace within.

Thy love to me, O God, 

not mine, O Lord, to thee,

Can rid me of this dark unrest, 

and set my spirit free.

Thy grace alone, O God, 

to me can pardon speak;

Thy pow’r alone, O Son of God, 

can this sore bondage break.

No other work, save thine, 

no other blood will do;

No strength, save that which is divine, 

can bear me safely through.

I bless the Christ of God; 

I rest on love divine;

And with unfalt’ring lip and heart, 

I call this Savior mine.

His cross dispels each doubt; 

I bury in his tomb

Each thought of unbelief and fear, 

each ling’ring shade of gloom.

I praise the God of grace; 

I trust his truth and might;

He calls me his, I call him mine, 

my God, my joy, my light. 

‘Tis he who saveth me, 

and freely pardon gives;

I love because he loveth me, 

I live because he lives.

Original Hymn: Not What These Hands Have Done

Author: Horatius Bonar (1864)
