1 Jesus will carry your burdens,
Pray’rfullyask, ask him today;
He will give rest to the weary,
And guide ev’ry step of the way.

Cast ev’ry burden on him,
Cast on him ev’ry care!
If you will trust his grace,
Ev’ry burden he gladly will bear;
Why carry burdens alone,
Why in helplessness fall?
Jesus is ready to help you,
He freely will bear them all.

2 All who are crushed by their sorrow,
Each soul that needs hope and relief;
Tell ev’ry woe to the Savior,
For he was acquainted with grief. [Refrain]

3 Jesus will carry your burden,
Wondrously cleanse, cleanse from all sin,
If you believe him and love him,
Great joy you will have from within. [Refrain]
