Representative Text

1 Whate’er your grief or your load of care,
Roll your burden on the Lord!
Leave all with Him who is strong to bear,
Roll your burden on the Lord!

Refrain:
Roll, roll your burden on the Lord,
Roll your burden on the Lord!
O trust in Him who hath promised peace,
Roll your burden on the Lord!

2 When skies are dark and the road is rough,
Roll your burden on the Lord!
He bids you come,—is it not enough?
Roll your burden on the Lord! [Refrain]

3 Believe His word, it is true and tried,
Roll your burden on the Lord!
O test His love, it will still abide,
Roll your burden on the Lord! [Refrain]

4 Tho’ countless worlds on His pow’r depend,
Roll your burden on the Lord!
The King of kings is the sinner’s Friend,
Roll your burden on the Lord! [Refrain]
