Lyrics

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

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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