Cast thy cares upon the Savior,
He will bear them all for thee;
And thy soul which now is burdened,
Shall be kept forever free.


Cast thy cares upon the Savior,
He will gladly bear them all,
Even though they seem like mountains,
Even though they may be small.

Cast thy burdens all on Jesus,
Leaning on His gentle breast,
And if storms do gather ’round thee,
Sweet will be thy peaceful rest.


Put your trust alone in Jesus,
Trusting not in human arm;
And if cast within the furnace,
He will keep thee from all harm.


Live the life the Word demands you,
Then the foe you need not fear;
For while standing on the promise,
Jesus Christ is always near.
