“Timothy’s Burden” Lyrics

I should have expected this one when I named my blog, but one of the most common search results that leads people here is some variation of “Timothy’s Burden lyrics.” My guess is that most people’s exposure to the phrase is due to the song. I’m not sure how many different songs exist with that title, nor do I have any idea who wrote it. But I do have the song as it appears on the Martins’ album Live, In His Presence. And because you searched for it, here are the lyrics to this great Southern Gospel song!

Bring me my books and my overcoat
‘Cause winter’s not far down that road
These days grow short and the truth
Won’t let me go

I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Not ashamed to wear this chain
If I suffer things uncertain
Gonna count my loss for gain
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Oh yes I am
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden

The grip of eternity on my heart
And the voice of a true faithful Friend
Are pulling me back to my first love again

I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Set free to run this race
And I bear God’s testimony
I’m a prisoner of His grace
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’ve got the truth inside
Though I suffer things uncertain
I’ll keep the faith and fight the fight
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Oh yes I am
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden

Yeah, gonna keep the faith
And I’ll fight the fight
Here’s my life

I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’m takin’ on, I’m takin’ on
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’m takin’ on, I’m takin’ on
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden

I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Set free to run this race
And I bear God’s testimony
I’m a prisoner of His grace
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’ve got the truth inside
Though I suffer things uncertain
I’ll keep the faith and fight the fight
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
Oh yes I am
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
I’m takin’ on Timothy’s burden
