Come, Ye Disconsolate
Music by Elizabeth Ragsdale
Lyrics by Thomas Moore and Thomas Hastings (adapted), and Elizabeth

Verse 1
Come, ye disconsolate, wherever ye languish,
Here health and peace are found, Life and Truth and Love;
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow but Love can now remove.

Verse 2
Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
The hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure;
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
Earth has no sorrow that Love cannot now cure.

You who have wept,
then felt comfort’s hand,
in turn you must bless
to meet Love’s demand.

Verse 3
Here see the Bread of Life, see waters flowing,
flowing forth from the throne of God, pure from above;
Come to the feast of love, come, ever knowing,
Earth has no sorrow but Love can now remove.
