Have you been to Jesus with your stains of sin?
Is your life committed to Him?
Have you asked Him to bear your grief and your woe?
Do you know that He loves you, my friend?
Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me,
And I will give you, and I will give you rest.
How often through life do we struggle and fall
’Neath a load that we need not to bear;
For Jesus will carry your burden right now.
On the cross He carried it all.
But want as we would that our burden be gone,
Yet heavy the load that we bear;
Loud we complain that our burden does pain,
So loud, that we don’t hear Him say: –
