The Yoke

“O come,” You say, “to Me and find
The rest you so much crave.
With gentle spirit,
A lowly mind,
I came to seek and save.”

“But Lord,” I say, “You surely jest,
For You command a yoke.
To bear a burden?
This is no rest!
This ‘freedom’ seems a joke!”

“In faith,” You say, “submit to Me
And learn the way I spoke:
My yoke is easy;
My burden, light;
The rest is in the yoke.”
