Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Lyrics

Chorus 1
Come unto me, all you weary
I will give you rest
Come unto me, take my yoke on your shoulders
I will give you rest.
For I am gentle, humble in heart
And you will find rest for your souls.
Come unto me, all you weary
I will give you rest.

Verse 1
O Lord, I'm weary from all this weight upon me.
From sin and sorrow, from doubt and despair set me free.
For you take away the weight of this world from me.

Chorus 2
I come unto you, O Lord,
I am weary
You will give me rest
I come unto you, Put your yoke on my shoulders
You will give me rest
For you are gentle, humble in heart
And you will give rest for my soul
I come unto you, O Lord, I am weary
You will give me rest.

Verse 2
O Lord I hear you, your voice is calling to me.
I learn from you to trust, to hope, to believe
That your yoke is easy; your burden is light upon me.
