- `We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
- we wailed, and you did not mourn.'
At that time Jesus said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
"Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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." Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30
Come Unto Me
The unrelenting repeating miles
traffic congested seems everyone's happy
walking the echoing hospital corridors
wondering how much more she can bear.
Bright sunshine high clouds tourists abound
but there is no playground for us today
Momma is sick and in so much danger
how do we carry the load for her?
One who brings so much joy now afflicted
one who brought light brought low
one who has made room for so many
tied to a lonely bed of pain.
Into our world of weariness and tears
the song comes on the wind again
Come unto me all you that are weary
and I will give you rest.
O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
