When You Can’t Take it Any More, Jesus Will Take It

WhenYouCantTakeItAnyMoreJesusCanTakeIt

I considered writing a post about casting all your cares upon Jesus because He cares for you (1 Peter 5.7), but these hymns say it so much better.

Are you carrying burdens? God didn’t design us to carry such heavy loads. He is strong, He wants you to share your burdens with Him. Sometimes that means talking in prayer. Sometimes it means sharing aloud with a friend or counselor. Take that risk. Unload, let it out.

Lyrics from verse 2 “He Hideth My Soul” (by Fanny Crosby and William James Kirkpatrick)

  • A wonderful Saviour is Jesus my Lord
    He taketh my burden a-way
    He holdeth me up and I shall not be moved
    He giveth me strength as my day

 

  • He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock
    That shadows a dry, thirsty land
    He hideth my life in the depths of his love
    And covers me there with his hand
    And covers me there with his hand

Lyrics from “Tell it to Jesus” (by Jeremiah E. Rankin and Edmund S. Lorenz)

  • Are you weary, are you heavy hearted?
    Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
    Are you grieving over joys departed?
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
    He is a Friend that’s well known.
    You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Do the tears flow down your cheeks unbidden?
    Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
    Have you sins that to men’s eyes are hidden?
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
    He is a Friend that’s well known.
    You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Do you fear the gathering clouds of sorrow?
    Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
    Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow?
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
    He is a Friend that’s well known.
    You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Are you troubled at the thought of dying?
    Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
    For Christ’s coming kingdom are you sighing?
    Tell it to Jesus alone.

 

  • Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
    He is a Friend that’s well known.
    You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
    Tell it to Jesus alone.
