About the Selections

There is no rhyme nor reason to the song selections except that they are worthy to be used in conservative Bible-believing church services. I cannot say that all are my favorites because it all depends on the context of life at the time when Sunday rolls around. My favorite hymn is "Wonderful Words of Life" and my favorite songs are not very flashy or showy. One of the specials that made an impact on my life was very simple - a duet with guitar accompaniment of "Holy Spirit, Breathe on Me" - no key changes, straight out of the hymnal. As you receive each post just know that I'm not including what I think you have available in your own hymnal. These songs are just another resource for "new" songs or a reminder of songs that you've heard. God bless you as you use your music to encourage God's people every week of the year.

"Leave Your Heavy Burden at the Cross"

This is a wonderful old quartet song.  It is not difficult, has a great tempo, and is uplifting.  Your bass will definitely enjoy having some solo parts.


DO YOU BEAR A WEIGHT OF SIN?
AND YOU HAVE NO PEACE WITHIN?
AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOUR LIFE IS BUT A LOSS?
YOU CAN FIND A SWEET RELIEF
AND A JOY FOR EVERY GRIEF,
IF YOU LEAVE YOUR HEAVY BURDEN AT THE CROSS.

CHORUS
(Bass) LEAVE YOUR HEAVY BURDEN AT THE CROSS,
(Others repeat)LEAVE IT AT THE CROSS
AND GO FREE – O SINNER GO FREE
O SINNER GO FREE – O SINNER GO FREE
LEAVE YOUR HEAVY BURDEN AT THE CROSS,
LEAVE IT AT THE CROSS
AT THE CROSS OF CALVARY.
JESUS IS WAITING NOW TO WELCOME YOU THERE
HE WANTS TO SAVE YOU AND TO TAKE ALL YOUR CARE.
LEAVE YOUR HEAVY BURDEN AT THE CROSS,
LEAVE IT AT THE CROSS
AND GO FREE – O SINNER GO FREE
O SINNER GO FREE - O SINNER GO FREE.

Verse two
WHY THEN LONGER WALK ALONG
BURDENED DOWN WITH SIN AND WRONG
WHEN AT CALVARY YOU CAN BE FULLY FREE?
THERE IS STILL AN OPEN DOOR
DO NOT LINGER ANYMORE
YOU CAN KNOW A LIFE OF JOY AND VICTORY!

JUST LEAVE YOUR HEAVY BURDEN – AND GO FREE!
