Take This Yoke

Updated on December 16, 2012

Take this yoke

I have carried it too long

My shoulders are tired

My back is bent.

My soul cries out for relief

I want to let go

Yet I move forward

If only I had help

This load would cease to matter.

For years I have endured its burden

Each year adds weight and pain

A few more years and it will overtake me

I will be no more.

Take this yoke from me

Release me from my cell

Heaven hear my cry

This weight I can not bear.

This whisper from my lips to heaven flies

My cry is heard

My burden lifted

And I rest in the Master's arms.
