All Your Anxiety
Is there a heart o'er bound 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.
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 and music by Edward H. Joy
