When my heart was heavy with sorrow and sank it was then that I went to the living fountain and drank Jesus bears my burdens and lightens my load I believe all His promises that in His book he told He sees, He knows, and carries me to the rock that is higher and gives me victory over Satan who is the greatest liar Jesus is always there at times I need a faithful friend and when the old accuser attacks he is ready to defend
Jesus saw my heart and knew my burden was too heavy to bear so tenderly He said "cast on me all your care" I gave my burden to Him and left it in his hand He encouraged my heart and gave me the strength to withstand With Jesus on my side I knew I could not lose the fight The glory of his presence shone in my heart like a beautiful light He gave me a vision to keep on going and serve him with all my heart as I felt the comfort of the Holy Spirit and knew He would not depart
I poured out my complaint to the Lord and made my earnest plea I begged for his mercy and to do a miracle for me I felt my cry came into his ears and that he had heard recalling many promises I had read in his Word With a sweet assurance my petitions were appealed it seemed like my requests were then recorded and sealed I knew the Lord would answer in His time and way and though my heart was breaking there was coming a joyful day
Jesus is the only one who knows all and understands keeping me safe and secure in his strong and loving hands caring for me and uplifting me with his love all the day long and even when in the deepest valley puts in my heart a song He delivers me from all my troubles so that I am not consumed by them and reassures my heart to keep trusting and leaning on Him With songs of deliverance in the night Jesus always brings the victory keeping me with his sustaining grace til I finish my journey
When the pathway before me looks uncertain and obscured from my sight I just trust the Lord knows what he is doing and that His way is always right His way is so perfect, how could I ever doubt him or fear always looking upward and waiting for my Lord to appear New wonders of his grace and blessings He shows me day by day So good is He to me, I want to never from him stray Jesus knows the way that I take and the trials that I face and will deliver me all the days of my life til I reach my final resting place
I've had a burden on my heart for many years and for my dearest loved ones I've shed many tears Now that my life on earth is coming to a close I know a great victory is coming over Satan who did oppose When I get home I'll be waiting for my loved ones to join me there where we can all be together again and all the glories of Heaven share Thank you Lord Jesus for keeping me in your care throughout my life and for giving me a great hope that someday everything will be alright
Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
