1 Weary pilgrim on life's pathway
Struggling on beneath thy load
Hear these words of consolation,
"Cast thy burden on the Lord."

Refrain:
Cast thy burden on the Lord!
Cast thy burden on the Lord,
And He will strengthen thee, sustain and comfort thee
Cast thy burden on the Lord.

2 Are thy tired feet unsteady?
Does thy lamp no light afford?
Is thy cross too great and heavy?
"Cast thy burden on the Lord." [Refrain]

3 Are the ties of friendship severed?
Hushed the voices fondly heard?
Breaks thy heart with weight of anguish?
"Cast thy burden on the Lord." [Refrain]

4 Does thy heart with faintness falter?
Does thy mind forget His word?
Does thy strength succumb to weakness?
"Cast thy burden on the Lord." [Refrain]

5 He will hold thee up from falling;
He will guide thy steps aright;
He will strengthen each endeavor;
He will keep thee by His might. [Refrain]
