Wisdom is too high for a fool;
he openeth not his mouth in the gate.

Jesus Took My Burden
When I, a poor, lost sinner, before the Lord did fall, and in the name of Jesus for pardon loud did call; He heard my supplication, and soon the weak was strong, for Jesus took my burden, and left me with a song.
Oft-times the way is dreary, and rugged seems the road, oft-times I’m weak and weary, when bent beneath some load; But when I cry in weakness, “How long, O Lord, how long?” Then Jesus takes the burden, and leaves me with a song.
When I was crushed with sorrow I bowed in deep despair, my load of grief and heartache seemed more than I could bear; ‘Twas then I heard a whisper, “You to the Lord belong,” then Jesus took my burden, and left me with a song.
I’ll trust Him for the future, He knoweth all the way, for with His eye He’ll guide me along life’s pilgrim way; And I will tell in heaven, while ages roll along, how Jesus took my burden, and left me with a song.
Chorus: Yes, Jesus took my burden I could not longer bear, yes, Jesus took my burden in answer to my prayer; My anxious fears subsided, my spirit was made strong, for Jesus took my burden, and left me with a song.
