Cast Thy Burden upon the Lord



  1. 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 heav’ns.

    Let none be made ashamed

    That wait upon thee.

Text: Julius Schubring, 1806–1889; adapted from the Psalms

Music: Felix Mendelssohn, 1809–1847
