And Jesus said, “Come!”
To the light-hearted and the heavy-hearted: he said, “Come!”
To the well-off and the cast-off: he said, “Come!”
To the youngsters and the oldsters: he said, “Come!”
To the faithful and the faithless: he said, “Come!”
“Come unto me all ye who labour and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-29)
Jesus, we long to meet you in this hour of worship,
we hear your call.
