1. The trusting heart to Jesus clings, Nor any ill forbodes, But at the cross of Calv’ry sings, Praise God for lifted loads!
Refrain: 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.
3. He tells me of my Father’s love And never slumb’ring eye; My everlasting King above Will all my needs supply.
4. When to the throne of grace I flee, I find the promise true, The mighty arms upholding me Will bear my burdens too.
