Take My Burden

Lyrics & music by Darby Hughes

“Take My Burden”
 

When in grief and pain weighed down
I will take my burden to the Lord
Whenever I bear the weight of sin and scorn
I will take my burden to the Lord
What mercy’s mine! He shoulders every care
What relief to cast (leave) them there!
Whenever I seek support, let it first be prayer
I will take my burden to the Lord

When the light of joy breaks through
I will sing my praises to the Lord
Whenever refreshing grace turns grey skies blue
I will sing my praises to the Lord
Our Father’s heart delights in grateful song
And it cheers those suff’ring long
When heavenly joy is felt, I will not be still
I will sing my praises to the Lord

When His weary saints despair
Let us bear their burdens in the Lord
Whenever they’re even too frail to lift a prayer
Let us bear their burdens in the Lord
The grace of God who dwells in heav’n above
Is brought down in deeds of love
Whenever His children faint beneath life’s load
Let us bear their burdens in the Lord

Linger not in shame and guilt
Go and take your burden to the Lord
Remember the cross of Christ is pow’rful still
Go and take your burden to the Lord
Could such a God who freely gave His Son
Leave His saving work undone?
The burdens of guilty souls still roll away
I will take my burden, take my burden
I will take my burden to the Lord
