Song Lyrics

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

Well, Christ is my burden bearer, He's my only friend
Till the end of my sorrow and tells me to lean on Him

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

God is my strong protection, He's my bosom friend
Trouble arose all around me, I know who will take me in

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

He proved a friend to David, and hid him in a cage
The same God that David served, will give me a rest someday

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

Well, though my burden may be heavy, my enemies crush me down
Someday I'll rest with Jesus and wear a starry crown

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

I'll take this yoke upon me and live a Christian life
Take Jesus for my Savior, my burden will be light

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end

He proved a friend to David, and hid him in a cage
The same God that David served, will give me a rest someday

Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
Oh, trouble'll soon be over, sorrow will have an end
