 Song 38

Throw Your Burden on Jehovah

Throw Your Burden on Jehovah

(Psalm 55)

1. Please give ear, O Lord, Jehovah,

Let yourself be found by me.

Hear my prayer, and may you answer;

Help me unafraid to be.

(CHORUS)

Throw your burden on Jehovah;

He himself will you sustain.

He will never let you totter

But will help you firm remain.

2. Had I wings just as a dove has,

Far from danger I would fly,

Safe from those who seek to hurt me,

Sheltered from their hateful cry.

(CHORUS)

Throw your burden on Jehovah;

He himself will you sustain.

He will never let you totter

But will help you firm remain.

3. I will call upon Jehovah,

His protection I will seek.

He gives peace midst opposition;

Strength he gives to all the meek.

(CHORUS)

Throw your burden on Jehovah;

He himself will you sustain.

He will never let you totter

But will help you firm remain.

(See also Ps. 22:5; 31:1-24.)
