Is a burden wearing you down,
Like a heavy gown,
A weighted cloak or heavy yoke?
Are you being oppressed,
Or being tried to be blessed?
Is it just a test,
Or the enemy’s cruel jest?
Time and faith will tell,
If it’s from heaven or hell.
We all want to finish well,
And keep ourselves from going to Hell.
Then why do we fall under the spell,
Of the one who from Heaven fell,
And believe his lie? Oh, do tell me why?
The Son of Man came to die and quell
All doubt, and sin He did dispel.
Believe in Him to finish well,
And so escape the eternal Hell.
