Rest Under His Yoke by Raymond A. Foss

Rest from the burdens, the heavy loads
of life, of our day to day, our lives cluttered
filled by the urgent, not the important

Rest from the struggles, in the grace of simplicity
the discipline of letting go, of setting down
the unnecessary load, of picking up the yoke of Christ

Rest under his yoke, sharing the journey with our savior
walking in his presence, in his light, transformed
released of the loads, the burdens we have carried

Rest for the journey, focused, our eyes on him,
our heart, our faces, set for Jerusalem, to his destiny
understanding more fully, perhaps, the words of the master

Rest for today, for tomorrow, lives ordered by the rocks,
by the important things of our walk, our days
Rest in our Lord, under his yoke, together
