"Come As You Are"
Come out of sadness
From wherever you\u0027ve been
Come broken hearted
Let rescue begin
Come find your mercy
Oh sinner come kneel
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can\u0027t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can\u0027t heal

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You\u0027re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are

There\u0027s hope for the hopeless
And all those who\u0027ve strayed
Come sit at the table
Come taste the grace
There\u0027s rest for the weary
Rest that endures
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can\u0027t cure

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You\u0027re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Fall in his arms
Come as you are
There\u0027s joy for the morning
Oh sinner be still
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can\u0027t heal
Earth has no sorrow
That heaven can\u0027t heal

So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You\u0027re not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are
Come as you are
Come as you are
