Give Me Thy Burden for a Moment
solo
 
Original music and lyrics.  The song communicates how the Savior wants to help us through our very difficult burdens--although many times He cannot remove our trials completely, He will strengthen us from time to time as we need it.  This song is available in two versions:  one for higher (range D-F) and one for lower (range A-C)  voices.  The higher version is the original.

I know thy load is heavy,
I know thy knees are weak.
I know ye seem so far from
The refuge that ye seek.

Between the steepest mountains
Lie valleys, soft and green.
I will be thy valley;
Come rest a while in me.

CHORUS
Give me thy burden for a moment.
Cast off thy sorrow at my feet.
And what if ye may soon carry it again?
Will ye not be stronger then?
This moment, come rest in me.

I know thy mind is weary,
I know thy heart is grieved.
I know thy task is greater
Than others have received.

Between the fiercest winters
Lies summer's gentle breeze.
I will be thy summer;
Come rest a while in me.
 
CHORUS
Give me thy burden for a moment.
Cast off thy sorrow at my feet.
And what if ye may soon carry it again?
Will ye not be stronger then?
This moment, come rest in me.

I know of how ye serve me,
I know thy works of love.
I go now to prepare ye
A mansion up above,

A wondrous, lush green valley
Where all travail shall end,
Glorious, timeless summer.
So for now until then,

CHORUS
Give me thy burden for a moment.
Cast off thy sorrow at my feet.
And what if ye may soon carry it again?
Ye shall be much stonger then!
This moment, come rest in me.
