Comment 1 of 2, added on September 25th, 2005 at 12:28 PM.

The labourer wearied of his heavy burden enters the church to lay
it down.The church or the feet of God becomes a place of rest to
lay down his physical and mental agony.In God's presence man
finds the tumult of the outside world indistinct and slowly dies
down.It is difficult for man to carry world's sorrows on his
shoulders. He has to lay them at the feet of GOD who gives him
peace and joy.The worries of the world are transcient when man
thinks of his eternal life in Heaven. (1st stanza)
