Thy Burden

By Mary Wilder Tileston

      Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
      PSALMS 55:22

      To Thee I bring my care,
      The care I cannot flee;
      Thou wilt not only share,
      But bear it all for me.
      O loving Saviour, now to Thee
      I bring the load that wearies me.

      CAST thy burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain thee"--burden and all. "Thee" is the greatest burden that thou hast! All other burdens are but slight, but this is a crushing burden. But when we come to the Lord with our burden, He just lifts up His child, burden and all, and bears him all the way home.

      He lays his affairs and himself on God, and so hath no pressing care; no care but the care of love, how to please, how to honor his Lord. And in this, too, lie depends on Him, both for skill and strength; and, touching the success of things, he leaves that as none of his to be burdened with, casts it on God, and since He careth for it, they need not both care, His care is sufficient. Hence springs peace, inconceivable peace.
