1 I have laid my burden down where the crimson waters for,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me;
I have found a spring of joy that the world can never know,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me.

Refrain:
Praise the Lord! praise the Lord! hallelujah!
Still my happy, happy song shall be;
I have found a spring of joy that the world can never know,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me.

2 I have laid my burden down and my troubled heart is still,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me;
I am learning there by faith my Redeemer’s gracious will,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me. [Refrain]

3 I have laid my burden down; oh, the peace that fills my soul!
There’s a blessing at the cross for me;
I was dead but now I live since my Savior made me whole,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me. [Refrain]

4 I have laid my burden down and my Savior gives me rest,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me;
I can pillow now my head on His gentle, loving breast,
There’s a blessing at the cross for me. [Refrain]
