Hark! the Gentle voice of Jesus falleth
Tenderly upon you ear;
Sweet His cry of love and pity calleth:
Turn and listen, stay and hear.


Take His yoke, for He is meek and lowly;
Bear His burden, to Him turn;
He who calleth is the Master holy:
He will teach if you will learn.


Then, His loving, tender voice obeying,
Bear His yoke, His burden take;
Find the yoke His hand is on you laying,
Light and easy for His sake.


Ye that labor and are heavy laden,
Lean upon your dear Lord’s breast;
Ye that labor and are heavy laden,
Com, and I will give you rest.
