Words: Anonymous in Rowland Hill's Psalms and Hymns, 1783
Music: Davide C. Marney, 1995
Cast thy burden on the Lord
Only lean upon His word;
Thou wilt soon have cause to bless
His eternal faithfulness.
He sustains thee by His hand
He enables thee to stand;
Those whom Jesus once hath loved
From His grace are never moved.
Human counsels come to naught;
That shall stand which God hath wrought;
His compassion, love, and pow'r
Are the same for evvermore.
Heav'n and earth may pass away,
God's free grace shall not decay;
He hath promised to fulfill
All the pleasure of His will.
Jesus, Guardian of thy flock,
Be thyself our constant rock;
Make us, by thy pow'rful hand,
Strong as Zion's mountain stand.
