I’ve had My Troubled Soul floating around for years but haven’t really used it.
I don’t know why.
Used it tonight and I’m even more uncertain as to why.
It’s a great song.
The addition of the refrain from Leaning On The Everlasting Arms is also a nice touch. The song is strong enough to stand on its on, the addition of the chorus emphasises its theme cleverly.

This is an original sort of rendition.

Here’s another, in case you like is so much you’d like to hear another version.

The lyrics:

My troubled soul,
I’m leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms
Yes I’m leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms
1.
Why so weighed down?
You were not made to bear this heavy load
Cast all your burdens, upon the Lord
Jesus cares, He cares for you.
Prechorus.
Jesus cares, He cares for you
And all your worrying won’t help you make it through
Cast all your burdens, upon the Lord
And trust again, in the promise of His love.
Chorus.
Praise that mighty name of Jesus
Praise the Lord, the Lifter of my head
Praise the Rock of my Salvation
All my days are in His faithful hands.
2.
My anxious heart
Why so upset?
When trials come, how you so easily forget
To cast your burdens, upon the Lord
Jesus cares, He cares for you.
Prechorus.
Jesus cares. He cares for you
And all your worrying won’t help you make it through
Cast all your burdens, upon the Lord
And trust again, in the promise of His love.
Chorus.
Praise that mighty name of Jesus
Praise the Lord, the Lifter of my head
Praise the Rock of my Salvation
All my days are in His faithful hands.

And I’m leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms
Yes I’m leaning, leaning
Leaning on the everlasting arms

Chorus.
Praise that mighty name of Jesus
Praise the Lord, the Lifter of my head
Praise the Rock of my Salvation
All my days are in His faithful hands.
