Carry Our Burdens

From Matthew 11:28-29:  “[Jesus says] Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Walking

With weariness

Life’s heavy burdens

Causing missteps and stumbles

 

Coming

With light

Our Lord shines

Trusting always in Him

 

Casting

Our burdens

Upon His shoulders

Jesus will sustain us

 

Gentle

In spirit

Humble in heart

He will deliver us

 

Righteous

Reigning above

Immovable spirit

Lessens our taxing burdens

 

Jesus

Sending protection

The Good Shepherd

Caring for His flock

 

Sin

Washed away

By Christ’s blood

Our burdens grow lighter

 

Accepting

His Salvation

Following Jesus Christ

Our Lord and Savior

 

Patiently

Jesus waits

We come forward

Bearing one another’s burdens

 

Praying

With devotion

For one another

Reborn again through Christ

 

Christ

We believe

Follow God’s Son

Victory over our sins
