Weary from hunting truth and peace:
empty each hoped-for thrill:
pleasure which promised rest of mind,
leaving men weary still.
Take on my yoke, and learn of Me,
gently I’ll teach: come, taste and see:
rested your burdened soul will be.
Jesus demands a turnabout:
“Come unto Me, serve Me”.
Ask for forgiveness, ask for help, –
‘Easy my yoke, my burden light’
– Take it upon you: blessed
you’ll be for ever, burdened souls,
and will receive true rest.
Tune: Worthy, O Lamb of God art Thou … Thou art the everlasting Word
