The Bearer of Your Burdens

Why has the Lord so burdened me
With loads of pressing care

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain Thee." -Psalm 55:22

Why has the Lord so burdened me
With loads of pressing care
I seem to struggle daily
In the pit of deep despair


My joy is lost - I'm murmuring
Dear Lord how can it be
That I should be so floundering
So far from victory?


Why do you shoulder burdens, child
Though I am by your side
With longing that you'd understand
And in your Lord confide


You didn't have to struggle on
Your strength was sure to fail
'Tis only when you trust in Me
You'll brave the fiercest gale


You must have perfect confidence
That I can always be
The 'Bearer of your burdens'
Day by day, eternally.
