I had been studying the scriptures and the words of Jesus when He said in Matthew 11:28-30.
"Come to me, all 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 lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
In these times there are many who are burdened and heavy laden. But in the church, this should not be so. Pastors and ministers are burning out because of their heavy loads. But if the church operates according to the patterns established in the Bible, this should never occur.
This song was developed with the aim of showing that if we come to Jesus, He will alleviate our burdens because He is the light.
