Yoked with Jesus

In times of weakness and hour of need,
  yours is the strength by which we carry on,
  the shoulder we rest our head upon.
When our load is heavy and too much to bear,
  yours are the arms stretched out to help us
  the grace that we depend on.
In times of weakness and hour of need,
  your voice is heard,
  ‘Come… find rest.’
This is grace divine,
  the path we tread to wholeness
  of body and spirit,
the path that leads to you,
  and for which we offer our offering of praise.

John Birch, Methodist Lay Preacher and worship leader in Wales

Come to me,
  all you who are weary and burdened,
  and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you
  and learn from me,
  for I am gentle and humble in heart,
  and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
