"TAKE YOUR BURDENS TO JESUS"

Intro: Hallelujah!

Verse1
Well, it's a fine, fine thing just talking to Jesus
And feeling Him here so close.
And what a comfort to know that His broad shoulders
Can bear all our troubles and woes.
But it's so easy, when times get rough,
To wonder if His grace is really enough;
To take all our troubles to the Lord in prayer,
Then pick them up instead of leaving them there.
That's why …

Chorus 1
You gotta take all your burdens to Jesus,
And leave them there with Him.
Turn around and walk away,
And don't you pick 'em up again

Verse 2
Well, it was old Farmer Brown with his sack of potatoes,
Struggling down the road
When Farmer Jones drove by to give him a ride
And help him with his heavy load.
So up in the truck climbed Farmer Brown,
But he refused to put his heavy sack down.
He said: “Faith and be glory, I don't want to impose.
You given me a ride now, but I can carry me own potatoes!”

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2
You gotta take all your burdens to Jesus,
Leave them there with Him.
Now turn around and walk away,
And don't you pick 'em up again.

Take all your burdens to Jesus,
[Jesus reigns for ever and ever!]
Leave them there with Him.
[Hallelujah!]

Chorus 3
You gotta take [take] all your burdens to Jesus,
[Your burdens to Jesus,]
And leave them there with Him.
Turn around and walk away,
And don't you pick 'em up again.

Chorus 4
Take all your burdens to Jesus,
[Take them all to Him,]
And leave them there with Him.
Turn around and walk away,
And don't you pick 'em up,
No, don't you pick 'em up,
No, no, don't you pick 'em up again.
