TITLE: Carry Me

Sleep eludes me tonight
As I think of what's to come
The morning looms like a shadow
I walk the valley path
With tentative anxious steps
Afraid to move into tomorrow

Will I have the strength
Or will I flag before the door?
I can't do this anymore

Chorus:
I admit my helplessness
That's the first step, you have written on my list
I could never save myself
You're my shepherd, so I'll cling to you for help
I'm not ready to stand yet; carry me

When I'm away I'm confident
There's nothing standing in my way
I am capable of lifting this
I return to the rift
And suddenly I'm not so sure
I feel the weight begin to press

Can I tell the truth
That lovely words are known to hide?
In a moment I decide

Chorus

I'm forgetful when times are better but
I will fill my heart with your louder voice
I'm regretful when things I plan go wrong
Let me rest in you and freshened awake
Refreshened awake

Chorus x 2

Please carry me

(Inspired by Lara Landon)

This was so powerfully executed, and brought forth a myriad of emotions. Nicely done, and completely on target with the topic.

It touched me. Thanks.

God Bless,

This is lovely. I know I have had many sleepless nights and know the only way to survive is through Jesus carrying me.

"I admit my helplessness
That's the first step,..."

There is powerful truth right there.
