The Lord laid bare Israel’s sins, but also urged them to turn to Him and be restored.

BibleGateway: Hosea 6:1-6

ESV Text: Hosea 6:1-6



KJV Text:

The section starts at about 0:0 and ends at about 1:9

     1 Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. 2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. 3 Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

     4 O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away. 5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. 6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.(KJV)

Come unto Me, Ye Weary

1. “Come unto Me, ye weary, 
And I will give you rest.” 
O blessed voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to hearts opprest! 
It tells of benediction, 
Of pardon, grace, and peace, 
Of joy that hath no ending, 
Of love which cannot cease. 

2. “Come unto Me, ye wanderers; 
And I will give you light.” 
O loving voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to cheer the night! 
Our hearts were filled with sadness, 
And we had lost our way; 
But Thou hast brought us gladness 
And songs at break of day. 

3. “Come unto Me, ye fainting, 
And I will give you life.” 
O cheering voice of Jesus, 
Which comes to aid our strife! 
The Foe is stern and eager, 
The fight is fierce and long; 
But Thou hast made us mighty 
And stronger than the strong. 

4. And whosoever cometh, 
I will not cast him out.” 
O patient love of Jesus, 
Which drives away our doubt, 
Which, though we be unworthy 
Of love so great and free, 
Invites us very sinners 
To come, dear Lord, to Thee!
