"Come All You Weary" as written by Dustin Michael Kensrue, Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge and Teppei Teranishi....
Come all you weary with your heavy loads
Lay down your burdens find rest for your souls
Cause my yoke is easy and my burden is kind
I'll take yours upon me and you can take mine

Come all you weary, move through the earth,
You've been spurned at fine restaurants and kicked out of church,
I've got a couple of loaves, so sit down at my feet,
Lend me your ears and we'll break bread and eat

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Come all you weary, crippled you lay
I'll help you along you can lay down your canes
We've got a long way to go but we'll travel as friends
The lights growing bright further up, further in

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me

Come all you weary
Come gather round near me
Find rest for your souls

Rest for your souls
Rest for your souls

    General Commenti think this song is about Jesus Christ going to all of the enslaved people and the poor people and basically telling them listen to me (Lend me your ears) and i'll grant you passage to heaven in return for your faith (I’ll take yours upon me and you can take mine). or something around that area.

    this is my first comment so feel free to criticize or comment my comment.

    General Comment28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

    Matthew 11

    My OpinionI consider myself an agnostic and I usually don't enjoy religious lyrics very much, but I still love this song, probably because of the way it is written. Though it is mostly composed of biblical references, it can still be interpreted - at least to me - very universally. Everyone needs a place to rest their heads and it doesn't matter whether it means being surrounded by people you love, by your friends, or whether it is something abstract as faith itself - not faith in something in particular, simply faith in something important to you, which makes you feel secure.

    To me, this song serves as an inspiration to be a better man - to be someone, who is able to take someone elses burden for a while, so maybe someday, when I'm in trouble, someone will be there to help me with my own burdens.

    I personally believe, that if there's a God, it's not some entity hidden somewhere above. It's something that all of us are part of - every single living soul, we share a part of this connection that binds us together. Let's just be here for each other. For if we do this, none of us would ever be alone, no matter what they believe in. That's how I like to think about it and that's message to me.

    In the end - this song really helps me to find rest for my soul anytime I listen to it...

    Song MeaningMatthew 11:25-30

    25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

    27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

    28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

    General CommentI think the lyrics for the second verse are:

    Come all you weary, who move through the earth
    Spurned in fine restaurants and kicked out of church

    General CommentAnd the last line of the last verse sounds like:

    The light's growing bright further up further in

    Which I think is a reference to Chronicles of Narnia....by C.S. Lewis haha.
