~~ Help Me Bear Her Burdens ~~
Lord here I am on bended knees,
Thinking of how you made man, ocean and the seas.
My heart is so burdened for this wonderful friend,
Yet I know on You she can always depend.
She's been a true Warrior, along this road of life,
A mother, grandmother, friend, and wonderful wife.
She's just an ole country girl who deeply loves You Lord,
Not much for worldly goods, as many can afford.
She's just so thankful for your precious love,
For all you've bestowed upon her from up above.
She praises You daily for the roof over her head,
And for every extra day you awake her from her bed.
I know she constantly holds to your unchanging hand,
And she knows you will help her to understand.
She has been washed clean by the blood of the Lamb,
Almighty Father she acknowledges You're the Great I
Oh Precious Father, her burdens you see,
Help me to help her, give them to me.
I know I'm nothing, but I do love her much,
I'm willing to bear her burden, with the help of Your touch.
Her only solace Lord, is in Your Mighty Hand,
I know you will help her to understand.
Your wonderful Word has been a lamp unto her feet,
It's not Your will Lord to see Your child suffer defeat.
At times Father it's hard for her to comprehend,
How to accept these burdens that come without end.
You've told her Your grace is all sufficient for thee,
Your Holy Spirit has kept her, and set her completely free.
You have been her solid Rock, her friend and guide,
All these many years You've stood by her side.
Today she needs you more than ever, ever before,
Pass by again Lord and show her what's in store.
She will never question You, and she knows without a doubt,
You've always been there for her, and You'll provide a way out.
Please give her the wisdom and heart, to accept whatever Your will,
She knows for surety she'll meet You on Zion's Holy Hill.
