Cast Thy Burden on the Lord

Cast thy burden on the Lord,
Only lean upon His Word;
Thou shalt soon have cause to bless
His eternal faithfulness.

Ever in the raging storm
Thou shalt see His cheering form.
Hear His pledge of coming aid:
"It is I, be not afraid."

Cast thy burden at His feet;
Linger at His mercy-seat:
He will lead thee by the hand
Gently to the better Land.

He will gird thee by His power,
In thy weary, fainting hour:
Lean, then, loving, on His Word;
Cast thy burden on the Lord.

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Publishing House of the M. E. Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #468.

Note: This hymn is in the public domain. Also, the hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I generally use the first line as the title.

Hello, dear readers. I’m back, after a rather lengthy absence. Life got in the way of writing. But now I’ve been laid up to recover from surgery, and I can’t think of a better excuse to get back at it. I cannot promise faithfulness to my blog from here out, but I will continue to write as God leads and gives me time. I’ve missed you!
