I came to my Lord
With my burden of care,
And fell at His feet,
’tTas too heavy to bear.
He whispered to me
As I cried to Him there,
Remember how much I love you.

Refrain

The way may be rough,
But this is enough,
Remember how much I love you.

You surely forget
All the burden of woe
I bore for your sake
On the cross long ago.
In future, whenever
The bitter tears flow,
Remember how much I love you.

Refrain

The moment I heard
The sweet words which He said,
My unbelief vanished,
My terrors all fled.
On this blest assurance
I pillow my head,
Remember how much I love you.

Refrain

The words of my Lord
Turned the storm into calm,
The thought of His love
Soothed my heartache like balm.
I know that the future
Can bring me no harm,
Remember how much I love you.

Refrain

And so when the sorrows
Of others I feel,
I can to my Savior’s
Compassion appeal.
That He may to them
This great secret reveal,
Remember how much I love you.

Refrain
