Come To Me, O Weary Traveler Paul A. Tate/Sylvia Dunstan Come to me, O weary traveler, come to me with your distress. Come to me, you heavy burdened, come to me and find your rest. Do not fear, my yoke is easy, do not fear, my burden's light. Do not fear the path before you, do not run from me in fright. Take my yoke and leave your troubles, take my yoke and come with me. Take my yoke, I am beside you, take and learn humility. Rest in me, O weary traveler, come to me with your distress. Rest in me, my heart is gentle, rest and cast away your care.
* Offertory Response #641 “When In Our Music God is Glorified” Fred Green When in our music God is glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried: Alleluia! Let every instrument be tuned for praise! Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise! And may God give us faith to sign always: Alleluia!
