Burdens

Burdens

Those heavy burdens and some light
The painful burden in the dead of the night
Those carried afar
To those found so near
Their weight burdens a soul
But can you not hear the water
Of the streams running beside you
Can you find the living waters
Beside which you can lay your burdens down
There upon the banks
Leave all that you carry
And walk into the waters
Let the waters wash you clean
The streams that run right from heaven
Where the weak will find their hope
Where the weary lay down their burdens
And all who give them their soul
Will walk free once more

My Burden

My Burden

I leave my burdens at the foot of the cross
For I am not worthy to scale it’s frame
All I carry hangs upon my soul
This burden of a broken heart
And the pain of a shattered soul
I leave it there at the mercy tree

At the feet of the Saviour I place it all

In Him I’m free of the burden I carry

He takes it all for His yoke is easy
At His cross I find my peace
Peace from all I carry in my being
Eyes fixed upon Him my soul will soar
Free of the burdens that were breaking me
