Lyrics

Leave It There
Lyrics and music by Charles Albert Tindley and Elizabeth Ragsdale
Arrangement by Michael Butkus-Bomier

Verse 1
If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold,
And you try to get along with meager fare,
Just remember God’s own word, how He feeds the little bird.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Verse 2
If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain,
And your thought is almost sinking in despair,
Understand what’s real, how God will save and He will heal.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Chorus
Leave it there. Leave it there.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
If you trust Him through your doubt,
He will surely bring you out.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Verse 3
When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
Don’t forget that God will always answer prayer.
He will make a way for you and will lead you safely through.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.

Chorus

Bridge
If bowed beneath willful ways
Or bearing worldly weights,
Know the cause is still the same,
A sense of separation,
A mistaken calculation.
Neither you nor God is to blame.

Chorus
