Burden Bearer

As I was walking down one day on an old rugged road
Wondering how I would make it with such a heavy load
My burdens are so many I cannot bear them all
Thats when I needed a Saviour to answer my every call

When troubles are so many and seems so hard to bear
Call on the name of Jesus and He will answer prayer
It only takes a moment He is only a breath away
He will always hear your cry no matter what you say

Your burdens will be lighter if you let me walk with you
I will brighten up your day and will make your life anew
Cast all your care on me for I know that you are here
Come to me wherever you are for I'll always be right there

When days seems long and dreary and you feel you can't go on
I'll be right there beside you so you won't have to go alone
I can see the little sparrow when it falls upon the ground
Will also lift you up for you were lost and now you're found

    JESUS walks by you - he never leaves your side, you can't get rid of him no matter how hard you try.
    you are his child and he will protect you thru thick and thin, and you know in your heart with him you always win. (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
