1 Have you ever tried to bear your burdens
All alone? All alone?
Don’t you know there’s One Who waits to help you,
Who will make all your burdens His own?

Refrain:
When I have burdens to bear which no one can share,
I take them to Jesus, the Man of Calvary;
When I have crosses to bear, my Savior is there,
And always takes the heavy end, and gives the light to me.

2 Don’t you know He trod the wine-press for you?
All alone? All alone?
And the burden that He bore in meekness,
Such a burden no other has known. [Refrain]

3 Don’t you know that He has bought your pardon
All alone? All alone?
And your gratitude for such a mercy
Unto Jesus you never have shown. [Refrain]
