Hymn using same tune: #47 (Tune 2)


Cast thou thy care upon the Lord,

The care that loads thy heart;

Take Him this moment at His word,

And let Him do His part.


The need is deep, the care is great,

The burden hard to bear;

Roll it on Him with all its weight,

And leave it resting there.


This heavy thing, it is His gift,

His portion, thee to bless;

Give it Him back; what He shall lift

No more on thee shall press.


Cast all thy care, and not a part,

The great things and the small;

The Lord's all-loving, mighty heart

Has room and thought for all.


Yes, He will ponder every care,

Consider each detail;

Thyself, thy burden, let Him bear;

He will not, cannot, fail.
