Cast thy burden upon the Lord

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
and he shall sustain thee.  
He never will suffer the righteous to fall.  
He is at thy right hand.  
Thy mercy, Lord, is great,
and far above the heavens.  
Let none be made ashamed,
that wait upon thee.
