Lyrics

Dost thou bear a heavy burden,
Knowing not what yet may be?
In perplexity, O listen
To the voice that speaks to thee.

Refrain

Call upon Me, I will answer;
I will show thee mighty things.

From the throne of Love Eternal,
Lo, the wondrous message rings.

Is the pathway dim before thee?
Dost thou fear to walk alone?
Fear thou not, for God will show thee
What before thou hast not known.

Refrain

In the conflict dost thou falter?
Look to Him, thy conquering king;
In His name thou, too, shalt conquer,
And the song of triumph sing.

Refrain

In thy day of joy, victorious,
Or the hour when strength is weak,
When thy life is near the nightfall,
Hark, for God the Lord will speak.
