Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. ~Psalms lv : 22.
Child of My Love, lean hard
And let Me feel the pressure of thy care
I know thy burden. child. I shaped it;
Poised it in Mine own hand; made no proportion
In its weight to thine unaided strength
For even as I laid it on,I said,
“I shall be near, and while She leans on Me,
The burden shall be Mine, not hers;
So shall I keep My child within the circling arms
Of My own love.” Here lay it down nor fear
To impose it on a shoulder which upholds
The government of worlds. Yet closer come
So I might feel My child reposing on My heart
Thou lovest Me? I knew it. Doubt not then,
But loving Me, lean hard.
