Cast Your Burdens On The Lord (Ps 55)

Cast your burdens on the Lord
Know that He’s caring, caring for you
Just let His love fill you again

Cast your burdens on the Lord
Know that He’s with you, with you always
Just let His peace fill you again

Even in our darkest night
He will light our way
Turn the night to day
He’ll lead us home
He’ll lead us home

Cast your burdens on the Lord
He will sustain you and preserve you
Just let His power fill you again

Cast your burdens on the Lord
Know that He’s faithful, rich in mercy
Mighty and just – long may he reign!

Even in our darkest night
He will light our way
Turn the night to day
He’ll lead us home
He’ll lead us home
He’ll lead us home

Love the blend of instruments.
The oboe and high piano are well placed.
Vocal is very good, particularly enjoyed the harmonies.

Well done.

Good instrumentation. A full, blended sound with very nice simple additions (oboe and vibes).

Very good vocals and harmonies. Good mix. A beautiful melody.

A very melodic, well sung (and harmonised) interpretation of the Psalm.
I could hear your song becoming the template for a choral version.
Very good!

Hi Brian,

I really liked your arrangement and your vocals on this song. It reminds me of the music that I hear that is supposedly commonly played in Jerusalem. It has the same chord progressions, anyway. An enjoyable listen. Thanks for posting...

This is very well done. The production qualities are excellent - the vocals and instruments are distinct and clear, and the tone is very smooth. The close mic recording of the vocals is a good choice for this type of song, as it captures the nuances and allows the volume to be tightly controlled. The vocals were very up front, but that suits my taste.

Your vocals are excellent and the performances and choices on the instruments were very appealing. The melody is very strong and solid and the upbeat syncopated rhythm is a good choice for this song.

Enjoyed my listen a lot.

This is a lovely little worship song that would fit well into any church service.

Nice arrangement, good vocals, lyrics and harmonies.
