Representative Text

1 One of Christ’s burden bearers,
I follow where He leads,
Content to trust Him wholly
Who knoweth all my needs;
The way may seem most dreary,
And lead thro’ desert land,
But God is always near me,
My wants to understand.

One of Christ’s burden bearers,
To Him for help I call.
And knowing He will answer,
I trust Him all in all.

2 I know His love will guide me
Along this earthly vale,
For never one who trusted
Has known a promise fail;
In dark and stormy weather,
Above the tempest wild,
I hear Him saying softly,
“Have faith in me, my child.” [Refrain]

3 One of Christ’s burden bearers,
In His I sink my will,
And when His cross seems heavy,
Christ is my comfort still;
My heart grows stronger, braver,
At thought of what He bore,
Content a burden bearer
To be forevermore. [Refrain]
