My soul was heavy laden

Representative Text

1 My soul was heavy-laden and weary seemed the way,
With care and sin my heart was sore oppressed;
But Jesus bade me listen—I heard Him softly say,
“Come unto Me, poor sinner, and have rest.”

Refrain:
I left it all with Jesus long ago,
I left it all with Jesus long ago;
My ever care and sorrow,
The burden of tomorrow,
I left it all with Jesus long ago.

2 I came and found my Saviour, with arm outstretched in love
He raised me up and told me to be glad;
He showed me that the heavens are ever bright above,
That none of His dear children need be sad. [Refrain]

3 There is no friend like Jesus to bind the broken heart,
I’ve tried Him and I know Him to be true;
He fills me with His gladness, He healeth every smart,
O why not let Him be your Saviour too? [Refrain]
