King Jesus Will Roll All My Burdens Away

An optimistic Christian living in a dangerous suburban neighbourhood contemplates the day Jesus Christ will come to save him.

Though my pay's so bad

And I've lost the good job I had

Why does my heart feel so happy and gay?

All around me society falls

Yet I'm not worried at all

For if I pray,

King Jesus will roll all burdens away.

All away
All away
King Jesus will roll my burdens away
If to him I pray
He opens wide doors for me
Doors I'm not able to see
And if I pray
King Jesus will roll my burdens away

Even in my own home

I'm never left all alone

Last weekend they got hold of my TV

Though I wish my house more secure

I'm sad that I'm missing Geordie Shore

If I pray

King Jesus will roll all my burdens away.

All away
All away
King Jesus will roll my burdens away
If to him I pray
He opens wide doors for me
Doors I'm not able to see
And if I pray
King Jesus will roll my burdens away

Though I've no money with which to buy food

I'm in a wonderful mood

For I know King Jesus will rescue me one day,

My neighbours are convicted criminals

And they're not all that subliminal

But if I pray

King Jesus will roll all burdens away.

All away
All away
King Jesus will roll my burdens away
If to him I pray
He opens wide doors for me
Doors I'm not able to see
And if I pray
King Jesus will roll my burdens away

 


There's mould on the ceiling, I'm weak

I've a cold and I can barely afford a drink

I wish King Jesus could give me a nicer place to stay

I had a whiskey, and two beers more

And now I'm lying on the floor.

But if I pray

King Jesus will roll all burdens away.

All away
All away
King Jesus will roll my burdens away
If to him I pray
He opens wide doors for me
Doors I'm not able to see
And if I pray
King Jesus will roll my burdens away.


And that's why I say King Jesus will roll all my burdens away.

The End
