Iris, Lily-of-the-Valley, and Peonies with To the hills I lift mine eyes and Cast thy burden on the Lord

  To the hills I lift mine eyes,
  The everlasting hills;
Streaming thence in fresh supplies,
  My soul the Spirit feels:
Will he not his help afford?
  Help, while yet I ask, is given:
God comes down; the God and Lord
  Who made both earth and heaven.

  Faithful soul, pray always; pray,
  And still in God confide;
He thy feeble steps shall stay,
  Nor suffer thee to slide;
Lean on thy Redeemer’s breast;
  He thy quiet spirit keeps;
Rest in him, securely rest;
  Thy Watchman never sleeps.

  Neither sin, nor earth, nor hell,
  Thy Keeper can surprise;
Careless slumbers cannot steal
  On his all-seeing eyes;
He is Israel’s sure defense;
  Israel all his care shall prove;
Kept by watchful providence,
  And ever-waking love.

Charles WesleyCast thy burden on the Lord,
Only lean upon his word;
Thou shalt soon have cause to bless
His eternal faithfulness.

Ever in the raging storm
Thou shalt see his cheering form,
Hear his pledge of coming aid:
“It is I, be not afraid.”

Cast thy burden at his feet;
Linger at his mercy-seat:
He will lead thee by the hand
Gently to the better land.

He will gird thee by his power,
In thy weary, fainting hour:
Lean, then, loving, on his word;
Cast thy burden on the Lord.
