William J. Kirkpatrick (1838–1921)


The trust­ing heart to Je­sus clings,
Nor any ill fore­bodes,
But at the cross of Cal­v’ry, sings,
Praise God for lift­ed loads!


Singing I go along life’s road,
Praising the Lord, prais­ing the Lord,
Singing I go along life’s road,
For Je­sus has lift­ed my load.

The pass­ing days bring ma­ny cares,
Fear not, I hear Him say,
And when my fears are turned to pray­ers,
The bur­dens slip away.


He tells me of my Fa­ther’s love,
And ne­ver slum­ber­ing eye,
My ev­er­last­ing king above
Will all my needs sup­ply.


When to the throne of grace I flee,
I find the pro­mise true,
The migh­ty arms up­hold­ing me
Will bear my bur­dens too.
