Can You Help A Sinking Ship
by Mary Cannon

Is your ship carring, the right cargo
are the weights carrying you down?
Could it be your toting un-needed baggage
that will surly, cause one to go down

Unload those hang-ups, toss them overboard
you don't need them to hang around
Loose yourself from all those cares
and then seek for higher ground

Can't you see the ship is wavering
being burden with so many loads
God never intended for us, to fret and worry
but to run to his heavenly abode

The journey's long, because we fail to see
that they are slowing the vessel up
So take hold of the anchor, which is God's word
and let it overflow your cup

Release those heavy problems
let him carry them all for you
Then rest in his arms of safety
and just wait until he brings you through

Don't try to fix it, leave it alone
cast your cares upon his shoulders
and just ride it through, and know that he
will soon make them be over

Leave off hate, and those petty debates
pick up forgiveness so to lighten the ship
and tell love climb aboard, I need a little more
to make easy sailing, for this trip

The answer" yes, you can help a sinking ship
there is hope for a joyous ride
When damaging cargo is cast behind
and with the help of our Savior by our side
