Bring Your Burdens to The Cross

Each life will know some trials
Along this human way,
But, Lord, You'll walk close by our side
To help us day by day.

But first we must relinquish
The things that weigh us down.
Allowing You to carry them
And take away our frown.

Lord, now I gladly give to You
This heavy load of care,
For You have promised in Your Word
My burdens You will bear.

Take all my sins and worries, Lord,
I bring them to Your Cross,
Expecting You to give to me
Your Grace in place of loss.
