673. Cast Your Burden on the Lord

1 Cast your burden on the Lord,
only lean upon his word;
you will soon have cause to bless
his eternal faithfulness.

2 He sustains you by his hand,
he enables you to stand;
those whom Jesus once had loved
from his grace are never moved.

3 Human counsels come to naught;
that shall stand which God has wrought;
his compassion, love, and pow'r
are the same forevermore.

4 Heav’n and earth may pass away,
God’s free grace shall not decay;
he has promised to fulfil
all the pleasure of his will.

5 Jesus, guardian of your flock,
be yourself our constant rock;
make us, by your pow'rful hand,
strong as Zion’s mountain stand.
