1 How gentle God's commands,
How kind His precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,
And trust His constant care.
2 While Providence supports,
Let saints securely dwell;
That hand, which bears all nature up,
Shall guide His children well.
3 Why should this anxious load
Press down your weary mind?
Haste to your heavenly Father's throne,
And sweet refreshment find.
4 His goodness stands approved,
Down to the present day;
I'll drop my burden at His feet,
And bear a song away.
