When Weary And Worn With The Burdens


When weary and worn with the burdens of life,
And the soul has grown faint in the battling and strife,
Then to Thee, O my God, in my anguish I cry;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

Refrain:
Lead, O lead me!
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
Lead me to the Rock,
That is higher than I!

When tempted by evil to wander away
From the path Thou hast made to the realms of bright day,
Then to Thee, O my Saviour my Refuge I fly;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]

When done with the ills that beset us below,
And the swelling of Jordan is near me, I know,
Then on Thee, O my Saviour my hopes I rely;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I. [Refrain]
