The worries are
 draining, they’ve
 pulled at my heart,
   too often carrying
     away my peace and
        joy. Obligations and
         expectations become
          a load that weigh me
           down until I dread I am
            going to drown! Fears
             strike at my spirit with
              streaks of fire, branches
               snapping and falling with
                a splash. Eddies churn in
                 confusion, stirring tales of
                  woe ’til faith is choking—
                  ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
                  midst of all gone wrong I feel
But in the /                                                  a love that makes me strong…
                    bridge of saving grace, secure
I climb the /                                                in Father’s warm embrace…
                    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
                      The worries can clash upon
                       my heart, but they cannot
                        steal my joy. Pressures may
                         weigh me down, but I have
                         love that makes me fly! Fears
                           will strike with flashing fury,
                            but I have a lightning rod of
                            grace, and through the eddies
                             of confusion it is love that
                              radiates through the night…
                               Whatever storms may come,  
                                I have a Father who will take
                                 my hand and lead me home…

this is incredible. The content is passionate and heartfelt, and the design of your bridge using words as the materials is brilliant.

I do NOT even want to know how much time this took you to format. Bravo!
