I Won't Have To Worry Anymore - ISO Author

Post by BKM84 » Sat Jul 10, 2021 12:45 am

I'm looking to find out who wrote an old hymn my mom used to sing. I believe the title is "I Won't Have To Worry Anymore" The first verse and chorus are below. If anyone can help me track down the author of this song I would be forever grateful.

Down here the burdens heavy
and the road is rough and long
sometimes I get so weary I can't go on
but a brighter day is coming
soon I'll rest on heaven's shore
and I won't have to worry anymore

I won't have to worry when I reach the other shore
All my troubles will be over and I'll rest forevermore
My eyes will be on Jesus and my heart will be a glow
And I won't have to worry anymore

I saw several of your posts, but this is the only one I was able to track down. Hope others can help with the rest.

"I Won't Have to Worry Anymore" was written by James Goss and Jimmy Jones in 1971, and first performed by the Goss Brothers.

Since then it's been covered a bunch of times. The more popular recent covers include:

Owen Mac - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zA_DAS8xczg
Jeff and Sherri Easter - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v3InDHXwnA
Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P85ZScgxq3o
Redeemed Quartet - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJwrXB1lp0o

By the way, the Nelson Music Group owns the copyright. Here's their contact information if anyone needs it:

In case anyone needs them, here are the full lyrics:

1.
Down here my burden's heavy
And the road is rough and long
Sometimes my feet get weary and so sore
But a brighter day is coming
Soon I'll rest on Heaven's shore
And I won't have to worry anymore

Chorus
Oh I won't have to worry
When I reach the other shore
All my troubles will be over
And I rest forever more
My eyes will be on Jesus
And my heart will be a glow
And I won't have to worry anymore

2.
Someday when life is over
And I've said my last good bye
I'll see my Savior standing at the door
He'll say "my child you're welcome
All your cares are left behind"
And I won't have to worry anymore

Repeat Chorus

Tag
No I won't have to worry anymore
