Burdened and plagued within - In the Far Country
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

In the Far Country.

1. Burdened and plagued within,
  harassed and sore distressed,
rent by the throes of sin,
  Jesus can give thee rest!

2. Worn as thou art with fears,
  weary and wanting peace,
Jesus can dry thy tears,
  give to thy soul release.

3. Wanderer! oh, return!
  Famished and lone art thou:
One o'er the lost doth yearn,
  runneth to meet thee now.

4. Come to the Father's heart,
  come in thy direst need;
wanderer as thou art,
  here is a home indeed.

5. Off with thy rags of sin,
  on with the robe of white!
Pardon and peace within,
  darkness – exchanged for light.

6. Now in the holy way,
  marked by the Saviour's blood,
walk as a child of day,
  living henceforth to God.

7. Tell of that saving name,
  Jesus who died for thee;
Jesus alone proclaim,
  Jesus, who set thee free!

Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 151-152.
