Our burden bearer

Representative Text

1 Cast thy care upon the Saviour,
He will all thy burdens bear;
He has promised to sustain thee;—
Claim his precious word in pray’r.

Jesus is our burden bearer;
All the world may now go free;
Hear his loving invitation,
“Weary soul, come unto me.”

2 He will make thy life to praise him,
And thy tongue to sing for joy;
He will give thee in affliction
Happiness without alloy. [Refrain]

3 He will not permit one sorrow
More thy comfort to molest
Than will fit thee for life’s duties
And the sweet, eternal rest. [Refrain]
