He Himself bore our sins in His body…so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness.@1 Peter 2:24

Minnie A. Steele, 1908 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I remember when my burdens rolled away;
I had carried them for years, night and day.
When I sought the blessèd Lord,
And I took Him at His word,
Then at once all my burdens rolled away.

Refrain

Rolled away, rolled away,
I am happy since my burdens rolled away.
Rolled away, rolled away,
I am happy since my burdens rolled away.

I remember when my burdens rolled away;
That I feared would never leave, night or day.
Jesus showed to me the loss,
So I left them at the cross;
I was glad when my burdens rolled away.

Refrain

I remember when my burdens rolled away,
That had hindered me for years, night and day.
As I sought the throne of grace,
Just a glimpse of Jesus’ face,
And I knew that my burdens could not stay.

Refrain

I am singing since my burdens rolled away;
There’s a song within my heart night and day.
I am living for my king,
And with joy I shout and sing:
Hallelujah, all my burdens rolled away!

Refrain
