We lay our burdens
All down at Jesus’ feet,
And at His bidding
Find peace and rest so sweet.

Refrain

O what a Savior!
O what a friend is He!
On Calv’ry’s mountain
He died to set us free.

No more we wander
In sin’s destructive road;
Jesus, the mighty,
Has lifted that great load.

Refrain

We now can praise Him,
Our only hope is He;
Within Him in glory
We’ll spend eternity.
