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

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.

2. 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]

3. He tells me of my Father’s love,
And never slumb’ring eye,
My everlasting King above
Will all my needs supply. [Refrain]

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