All Your Anxiety

Hymn lyrics and music by Edward H. Joy
Verse 1
  • Is there a heart o’erbound by1 sorrow?
  • Is there a life weighed down by care?
  • Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
  • All your anxiety—leave it there.
  • All your anxiety, all your care,
  • Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
  • Never a burden He cannot bear,
  • Never a friend like Jesus!
Verse 2
  • No other friend so swift2 to help you,
  • No other friend so quick to hear,
  • No other place to leave your burden,
  • No other one to hear your prayer.
Verse 3
  • Come then at once; delay no longer!
  • Heed His entreaty kind and sweet,
  • You need not fear a disappointment;
  • You shall find peace at the mercy seat.
1Some hymnals read “bent o’er with”
2Many hymnals read “keen”
