Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore Music by Samuel Webber

"Come ye disconsolate! where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy-seat, fervently kneel.”




Thomas Moore, of Dublin, the friend of Lord Byron, wrote some thirty-two songs, published in 1848, which have been united to popular airs of various nations. ”Come, Ye Disconsolate” has ministered to the soothing of many a troubled heart, and often guided the weary soul to the mercy seat, where alone the accusing conscience may lay its guilty burden down and realize,” Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal."
