Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. —Matthew 11:28
At one time I was laden down with burden and with care.
To me the Lord seemed always far away.
But when I called upon His name, I found that He was there
And waiting for the time when He could say,
“Come to Me all who are weary and who bear a heavy load,
“Come to Me and I will give you peace and rest.
“Take My yoke upon your shoulder
“Take My words into your heart,
“For My yoke is easy and My load is light.”
And then He claimed me as His own; this soul that He redeemed
Wants nothing more to praise Him every day.
And even though He’s blessed me more than I had ever dreamed,
He’s always there to comfort and to say,
And now I know you may be wondering how all this relates
To what you’ve seen and all that you’ve been through.
But if you’ll only hear his voice, I tell you that He waits
Until the time when He can say to you,
