A Hymn: Cast Thy Burden Upon the Lord


Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Jerusalem On High

The Composed Song

1. Ask it ‘ll be given you

Seek thou shall even find

Knock it ‘ll be ‘pened to you

And this is his promise


Cast thou your burden

Upon the Lord

Because he is the One

Who cares even for thee

2. For there isn’t a man

Whom his son asks of bread

But who will give him stones

Even in this very world


3. For there is no father

Whose son ‘ll also ask

Of him even fishes

Who ‘ll give him a snake


4. Or who can even be

Among thee let him say

Whose son ‘ll ask of eggs

But who ‘ll give him scorpion


5. If evil human beings

Do know how to give things

That ‘re good unto their sons

How much more our heav’nly Father


6. He ‘ll give those who have asked

Yea, his Holy Spirit

And also His Power

To serve him to the end


7. Good ‘xceedingly can do more

Above all that we ‘ve asked

And that abundantly

More than all our thoughts
