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.
