Description
Sylvia Dunstan's paraphrase of Matthew 11:28-30 is lovingly set here by William Rowan. His music has a folk-like simplicity about it, which is entirely appropriate to these words of comfort, rest, and assurance. Useful at any time, and especially so at funeral services.

Text
Come to me, O weary traveler,
come to me with your distress,
come to me you heavy burdened,
come to me and find your rest.

Do not fear, my yoke is easy,
do not fear, my burden's light;
do not fear the path before you;
do not run from me in fright.

Take my yoke and leave your troubles;
take my yoke and come with me.
Take my yoke, I am beside you;
take and learn humility.

Rest in me, O weary traveler,
rest in me and do not fear.
Rest in me, my heart is gentle,
rest and cast away your care.

--Sylvia Dunstan
