Every wise woman buildeth her house,
but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.

All Your Anxiety
Is there a heart o’erbound by sorrow? Is there a life weighed down by care? Come to the cross, each burden bearing, All your anxiety — leave it there.
No other Friend so keen to help you; No other Friend so quick to hear; No other place to leave your burden; No other one to hear your prayer.
Come then, at once, delay no longer; Heed His entreaty, kind and sweet; You need not fear a disappointment, You shall find peace at the mercy-seat.
Chorus: All your anxiety, all your care, Bring to the Mercy-seat, leave it there; Never a burden He cannot bear, Never a Friend like Jesus.
Words & Music: Lieut. Col. E. H. Joy
