Advent Hymnals

837. TRUST HIS CARE

Christ in Song,

1.
How gentle God's commands!
How kind his precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,
And trust his constant care.

2.
Beneath his watchful eye
His saints securely dwell;
That hand which bears all nature up
Shall guard his children well.

3.
Why should this anxious load
Press down your weary mind?
Haste to your heav'nly Father's throne,
And sweet refreshment find.

4.
His goodness stands approved
Thro' each succeeding day:
I'll drop my burden at his feet,
And bear a song away.
