Representative Text

1 When wearisome moments abide,
And burdens are heavy to bear,
Tell Jesus whatever betide,
And ask Him to lighten your care.

Refrain:
Oh, bear not your burdens alone,
To Jesus, your Savior, repair.
And let your petitions be known,
There’s wonderful virtue in prayer.

2 If sin has beclouded your way,
Forget not your Rock and your Shield,
But go unto Jesus and say,
Dear Savior, I come to be healed. [Refrain]

3 His ear will attend to your cry,
His eye neither slumbers nor sleeps,
His love will your spirits supply,
His children in safety He keeps. [Refrain]

4 Then trust Him for mercies to come,
Nor yield to temptations severe,
He’ll lead you in peace to your home,
And wipe from your eyes every tear. [Refrain]
