Leave It There   Misc. Gospel



From: John Peterson
Words and Music: Albert Tindley
First heard this one on the Washington Philip’s CD but is found in many hymnal’s.

Leave It There 


(G) If this world with-hold from you of its (C) silver and its gold,
(G) And you have to get along with meager (D)fare, 
(G) Just remember in His word (C) how He feeds the little bird
(G) Take your burden to the Lord and (D) leave it there.
 
Chorus;
(G) Leave it there, leave it there, 
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it (D)there.
(G) If you trust and never doubt, He will (C) surely bring you (G) out,
Take your burden to the Lord and (D) leave it there.


If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain,
And your Soul is almost sinking in despair; 
Jesus knows the pain you feel, He can save and He can heel
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
 
Chorus:


When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail, 
Don’t for-Get that God in heaven answers prayer;
He will make a way for you And will safely lead you thro’-
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
 
Chorus:
 
When your youth-ful days are gone and old age is stealing on,
And your body bends beneath the weight of care,
He will never leave you then, He’ll go with you to the end- 
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
