Long ago I left my load
Long ago He heard me pray,
By faith I see Him bleed for me,
Oh Happy day, Oh happy day.
Child leave your load of care with me
I bore it all at dark Calvary,
It was for you the price was paid,
In heaven today your Mansion waits.
Long ago I knew I needed Him
All my heart I gave to Him,
He lovingly got a hold of me,
He whispered, Child I love thee.
Everyday I leave my cares with Him
I will trust Him all the way,
He comes to me Oh so sweet,
I leave my cares at Jesus’ feet.
Friend will you leave your load today?
At the Cross hear Him say,
I died for you to save your soul,
Child come to Me, I'll make you whole.
