How Gentle God's Commands

     P. Doddridge                                         Hans G. Nägeli

How gentle God's commands!
How kind his precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,
And tr4ust his constant care.

Beneath his watchful eye
His saints securely dwell;
That hand which bears creation up
Shall guard his children well.

His goodness stands approved,
Unchanged from day to day;
I'll drop my burdens at his feet,
And bear a song away.
