James M. Bonnar
Under the burdens of guilt and care
Many a spirit is grieving,
Who in the joy of the Lord might share,
Life everlasting receiving.
Life, life, eternal life!
Jesus alone is the giver;
Life, life, abundant life!
Glory to Jesus forever!
Bearing our burden of guilt,
there came One who is strong to deliver;
Bringing to men, through His wondrous name,
Life "more abundant" than ever.
Burdened one, why will you longer bear
Sorrows from which He releases?
Open your heart and, rejoicing,
share Life "more abundant" in Jesus!
Leaving the mountain, the streamlet grows,
Flooding the vale with a river;
So, from the hill of the cross there flows
Life "more abundant" for ever.
O for the floods on the thirsty land!
O for a mighty revival!
O for a sanctified, fearless band,
Ready to hail its arrival!
