Bury Thy Sorrow (Hymn)

Bury Thy Sorrow
Mary A. Bachelor

Go bury thy sorrow, the world hath its share;
Go bury it deeply, go hide it with care.
Go think of it calmly, when curtained by night;
Go tell it to Jesus, and all will be right.

Go tell it to Jesus, He knoweth thy grief;
Go tell it to Jesus, He’ll send thee relief;
Go gather the sunshine He sheds on the way:
He’ll lighten thy burden—Go, weary one, pray.

Hearts growing aweary with heavier woe
Now droop ’mid the darkness—Go, comfort them, go!
Go bury thy sorrow, let others be blessed;
Go give them the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.

This is a first for me.  I will admit that, to my knowledge, I have never actually heard this hymn played or sung.  I would like to find the music to it to see what it sounds like, but I have not heard it.  I came across the lyrics of it the other day and thought it was a great song that contained a great truth.  So, while I do not know exactly how this song is sung, I do know that it is a good one!  We all have sorrow and heartaches, but we can not allow them to control us and destroy us.  I was very much encouraged by the last line:
“Go give them the sunshine, tell Jesus the rest.”  We need to take our sorrows and our cares to Jesus and we need to allow Him to help us be an encouragement to others.

  1. Thank you, Ben.

    Never heard of this one before either … I must say it’s very direct and very truthful. Jesus can handle whatever we throw at Him.

    I like the idea of spreading the sunshine that we gather from Jesus. Nice!

    Have a Super Sunday! I’m off to gather Sonshine! ( Borrowed from Deb 😉 )



    • I love Deb’s “Sonshine”- I had forgotten about that! This hymn kind of reminds me of “Tell it to Jesus”, in that whatever our problems are, we are to take them to Him. Good truth.


  2. I love the words to this too! Great find, Ben! So perfect for me to do too . . .Go tell Jesus. He always knows what to do! God bless you and encourage you today like you did us!
