Matthew 11:28
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

          Living below in this old sinful world,
          Hardly a comfort can afford;
          Striving alone to face temptation sore,
          Where could I go but to the Lord?

            Chorus
            Where could I go, O where could I go;
            Seeking a refuge for my soul?
            Needing a friend to help me in the end.
            Where could I go but to the Lord?

          Neighbors are kind, I love them ev'ry one,
          We get along in sweet accord;
          But when my souls needs manna from above,
          Where could I go but to the Lord?

            Chorus
            Where could I go, O where could I go;
            Seeking a refuge for my soul?
            Needing a friend to help me in the end.
            Where could I go but to the Lord?

          Life here is grand, with friends I love so dear,
          Comfort I get from God's own Word;
          Yet when I face the chilling had of death,
          Where could I go but to the Lord?

            Chorus
            Where could I go, O where could I go;
            Seeking a refuge for my soul?
            Needing a friend to help me in the end.
            Where could I go but to the Lord?
