LEAVE IT THERE
Words and Music by Charles A. Tindley, Jr. 1916

If the (G)world from you with(G7)hold of its (C)silver and its (G)gold,
And (D7)you (G)have to get a(A7/E)long with meager (D7)fare,
Just re(G)member, in His (G7)Word, how He (C)feeds the little bird;
(A7)Take your (G/D)burden to the (A/E)Lord and (D7)leave it (G)there.

Refrain
Leave it (G)there, (D7)leave it (G)there,
(G7)Take your (C)burden to the (D7)Lord and leave it (G)there.
If you trust and (D7/A)never (G7/B)doubt, He will (C)surely bring you out.
(A7/C#)Take your (G/D)burden to the D7)Lord and leave it (G)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 heal;
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
Refrain

When your enemies assail and your heart begins to fail,
Don’t forget that God in heaven answers prayer;
He will make a way for you and will lead you safely through.
Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
Refrain

When your youthful 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.
Refrain
