My Burdens Rolled Away
Words and Music by Minnie A. Steele

1 John 2:12
"I write unto you, little children, because
your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake."

          I remember when my burdens rolled away,
          I had carried them for years, night and day;
          When I sought the blessed Lord, and I took Him at His Word,
          Then at once all my burdens rolled away.

            Chorus
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away;
                                                (since my burdens rolled away)
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away.

          I remember when my burdens rolled away,
          That I feared would never leave night and day;
          Jesus showed to me the loss, so I left them at the cross,
          I was glad when my burdens rolled away.

            Chorus
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away;
                                                (since my burdens rolled away)
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away.

          I remember when my burdens rolled away,
          That had hindered me for years, night and day;
          As I sought the throne of grace, just a glimpse of Jesus' face,
          And I knew that my burdens rolled away.

            Chorus
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away;
                                                (since my burdens rolled away)
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away.

          I am singing since my burdens rolled away,
          There's a song within my heart night and day;
          I am living for my King, and with joy I shout and sing,
          Hallelujah! all my burdens rolled away.

            Chorus
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away;
                                                (since my burdens rolled away)
            Rolled away, (Rolled away), Rolled away, (Rolled Away)
            I am happy since my burdens rolled away.
