Gregory Norbet’s song “Come to Me” uses Matt 11:28-30 as a refrain for the Twenty-third Psalm, which was a fine idea. The version in AOV has only the first verse of the psalm and an instrumental interlude, but is is clear from the nonprintable preview at OCP that all verses have been set. We do the version in AOV and the nice thing is that you really only need the first verse of the psalm to get the idea.
This is nicely done – just organ and voice – actually Dawn’s Youtube channel is a gentle treat all round.
Come to me all who labour and are heavy burdened,
And I shall give you rest.
Take up my yoke and learn from me,
For I am meek and humble of heart.
And you’ll find rest for your souls,
Yes, my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall never be in need,
Fresh and green are the meadows where he gives me rest.
