I lay down my burdens, for I am weary,
I set down my load, for I am weak.
It is enduring peace I look for,
It is rest for the soul I seek.
I see that your yoke is well fitting,
For such a burden I yearn.
I long to serve the gentle,
From the humble I long to learn.
You, the gentle, are merciful,
By you, the humble, I’m blessed.
In you my soul finds peace,
In you my soul finds rest.
Your yoke is just as you promised,
In you I’m finally whole.
Your burden is light as you promised,
In you I find rest for my soul.
