Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

Representative Text

1 The burden I bear may bend me low,
But Jesus will share the load;
The pathway I tread may rugged grow,
My Saviour can smooth the road;
Tho’ sometimes the clouds may gather near,
He’ll scatter the shadows grim,
And onward I go without a fear,
There is nothing too hard for Him!

Nothing too hard for Jesus!
And so I am trusting in Him!
I lean on His strength almighty,
There is nothing too hard for Him!

2 The problems of life may oft perplex,
No answer to them I find;
The lessons I learn may sometimes vex,
My Teacher is always kind;
I study my task with weary brain,
And eyes that with tears are dim,
But Jesus can make each lesson plain,
There is nothing too hard for Him! [Refrain]

3 He brightens the path which I must tread,
He lightens the heavy load;
The future I face without a dread,
He leads me along the road;
And whether the sun may shine above,
Or shadows the skies bedim,
Forever I’ll trust my Saviour’s love,
There is nothing too hard for Him! [Refrain]
