Come all you weary with your heavy loads
Lay down your burdens find rest for your souls
Cause my yoke is easy and my burden is kind
I’ll take yours upon me and you can take mine

Come all you weary, move through the earth,
You've been spurned at fine restaurants and kicked out of church;
I’ve got a couple of loaves, so sit down at my feet,
lend me your ears and we'll break bread and eat

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Come all you weary, crippled you lay
I’ll help you along you can lay down your canes
We’ve got a long way to go but we’ll travel as friends
The lights growing bright further up, further in

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls
Rest for your souls
Rest for your souls

    Where would I go to get permission to use this song in a Sunday morning worship service (words on ppt and printed music for instrumentalists)? We have a CCLI SongSelect account, but this song is not available though them.

    To me, this song is about someone who is inviting people who are troubled in their lives to lay their burdens upon him, find help in him, and let him find help in them. I mean, that's how I feel in my life at the moment. I feel like everyone around me is troubled and I'm more than willing to help them shoulder whatever it is they're going through, simply because I've got a weight to carry too.

    This is for everyone who is tired of the devil and dreaming to submit his/her life to the king of heaven.

    Bring your problems to him instead of trying to fix them yourself, for he will fix them. His persecution and burden will set you free. Just because the bible has covers and is binded does not mean chapters are not still being written and we can all be a new chapter of miracles.

    We can only find true rest in that of jesus christ. By his word and prayer will we find rest, true rest.
