From the album Love Was Here First.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

When you got the weight of the world on your aching back
And the burden is too much for you
Well now, worry and strife won’t add a day to your life
But there is something you can do

You’ve got to roll it onto God
You’ve got to roll it onto God
He’s your provider, protector, your shelter and rock
You’ve got to roll it onto God

When you’re mistreated and misunderstood
And there’s not a single friend in sight
There is none so close as the Holy Ghost
And He is gonna make it right


When your own sin starts to drag you down
And the devil tells you, you are through
Remember Jesus Christ already paid that price
And even now He’s telling you …
