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

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

2. 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. [Refrain]

3. 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. [Refrain]
