Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.@Matthew 11:28

Come unto Me, all ye who are weary,
Heavily laden, cumbered with care.
Cast upon Me the sum of your anguish,
I will give joy and blessing most rare.

Refrain

Come unto Me, ye heavily laden,
Burdened with care and sorrow oppressed;
Breathe in My ear the tale of your sorrows,
I will give you rest.

Come unto Me, ye burdened with sorrows,
Pillow your weary head on My breast;
Breathe in My ear the tale of your heart’s woes,
Ever in Me the weary find rest.

Refrain

Come unto Me, ye wretched and sinful,
Why do you wait, my Spirit to grieve?
Long have I stood with arms wide extended;
Look unto Me, yes, look and live.

Refrain

Rest for the weary, food for the hungry,
Grace for the humble, joy for the sad,
Sight for the blind, and balm for the wounded,
Come unto Me, rejoice and be glad.

Refrain
