274. The Burden-Bearer

1 One morning a burden dropp’d down on my heart,
A burden too heavy to bear;
I took it to Jesus,
That He would impart
His grace, as I lingered in prayer.

He has taken the burden away,
He has taken the burden away,
All the cares and the trials that darkened the day,
From my heart He hast taken away.

2 ‘Twas more than I asked Him, the load to remove
When seeking for comfort that day;
Not always the wealth of His love do we prove
By failing to trust, as we pray. [Refrain]

3 O soul, with a burden, whatever it be,
Come, leave it with Jesus today;
When He takes the burden He sets the soul free,
And then you can sing, as you pray. [Refrain]
