TEMPEST TOSSED AND SORE AFFLICTED, SIN DEFILED AND CARE OPPRESSED, by             Poet's Biography
Last Line: Lo, the feet of your deliverer; lo, the hour of freedom here.
Alternate Author Name(s): Stevenson, Robert Lewis Balfour
Subject(s): Freedom


Tempest tossed and sore afflicted, sin defiled and care oppressed,
Come to me, all ye that labour; come, and I will give ye rest.
Fear no more, O doubting hearted; weep no more, O weeping eye!
Lo, the voice of your redeemer; lo, the songful morning near.
Here one hour you toil and combat, sin and suffer, bleed and die;
In my father's quiet mansion soon to lay your burden by.
Bear a moment, heavy laden, weary hand and weeping eye.
Lo, the feet of your deliverer; lo, the hour of freedom here.
