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 fulfill
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.
