Representative Text

1 Oh, come to the Lord, at His side press along,
His yoke is easy to bear;
While walking with Him swell the chorus of song,
His yoke is easy to bear.

Chorus:
His yoke is easy, His burden is light;
He’ll give you strength and courage, and keep you day and night;
His yoke is easy, oh, do not despair,
It is easy, so easy to bear.

2 His mercy is boundless, His heart full of love,
His yoke is easy to bear;
He leads all who will to the mansions above,
His yoke is easy to bear. [Chorus]

3 He seeks for the lost in the byways of sin,
His yoke is easy to bear;
His infinite love would the wanderer win,
His yoke is easy to bear. [Chorus]
