1. With a weight on my heart and the load on my shoulders
The burden of sin I once carried around,
Then I heard a voice say, "There's rest for the weary."
That's when I laid it all down.


Well, I laid it all down at the feet of my Savior,
The rest that He gave is the sweetest I've found.
Well, He said, "You can trust me, your burden I'll carry."
That's when I laid it all down.

2. I'm glad I have found such a friend who has given
Peace for my pain and a smile for my frown.
My heart is free and my burden is lifted,
Since I just laid it all down.

CHORUS: twice
