223. Leave it There

1 If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
And you have to get along with meager fare,
Just remember, in His Word, how He feeds the little bird;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Chorus:
Leave it there, leave it there,
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there;
If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

2 If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain,
And your soul is almost sinking in despair,
Jesus knows the pain you feel, He can save and He can heal;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Chorus]

3 When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
Don’t forget that God in heaven answers prayer;
He will make a way for you and will lead you safely thro';
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Chorus]

4 When your youthful days are done, and old age is stealing on,
And your body bends beneath the weight of care;
He will never leave you then, He’ll go with you to the end;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. [Chorus]
