Shoulder My Yoke

Good will overcome evil

Truth will overcome lies

Justice will overcome wrongdoing

All evil we despise

And light shall overcome darkness

And kindness overcome hurt

And patience overcome temper

And rubbish give way to worth


And living shall overcome dying

Life shall overcome death

There will be an end to crying

Though all shall take the last breath

The Lord who shared this life with us

And endured its utter pain

Went through death to guarantee

That life shall be again


All the signs are with us

The sun returns each day

The life that dies in winter

Returns in spring’s bright day

The curse of death is broken

Commit your self to him

The Lord of life has woken

A world once dead in sin
