Representative Text

1 We lay our burdens all down at Jesus’ feet,
And at His bidding find peace and rest so sweet.

O what a Savior! O what a friend is He!
On Calv’ry’s mountain He died to set us free.

2 No more we wander in sin’s destructive road;
Jesus, the mighty, has lifted that great load. [Refrain]

3 We now can praise Him, our only hope is He;
Within Him in glory we’ll spend eternity. [Refrain]
