Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Cast thy burden on the Lord,
Child of sorrow, do not fear;
If thou wilt believe His word,
Bright thy morn will soon appear;
Art thou sinful? why despair?
Pardon, peace, will Christ afford;
Come to Him by faith and pray’r,
“Cast thy burden on the Lord.”

2 Has some lov’d one left thee here,
Mourning o’er a grave so low,
Thou shalt find a Comforter,
If thou wilt to Jesus go.
Have thy friends forsaken thee?
Still rely upon His word;
He can all thy sorrows see,
“Cast thy burden on the Lord.”

3 Art thou tempted? Jesus knows
All the dangers of the way;
Tho’ the host of sin oppose,
He will keep thee day by day.
Art thou weak? on Him rely;
Strength for thee in Him is stor’d;
Thou shalt find Him ever night,
“Cast thy burden on the Lord.”
