For My Friends

February 27, 2007

Time and money have been thieving lately.  Or maybe just acting as accessories.  Stealing moments here and there, stretching relationships, pushing valuable things out of their way; in general making life difficult.  More difficult for some than others.  Here is an expression of love from me in borrowed words for those in more difficult times…

Carry You to Jesus – Gal. 6:2; Luke 5:18-20

I will not pretend to feel the pain you’re going through
I know I cannot comprehend the hurt you’ve known
And I used to think it mattered if I understood
But now I just don’t know

Well, I’ll admit sometimes I still wish I knew what to say
And I keep looking for a way to fix it all
But we know we’re at the mercy of God’s higher ways
And our ways are so small

But I will carry you to Jesus
He is everything you need
I will carry you to Jesus on my knees

It’s such a privilege for me to give this gift to you
All I’d ever hope you’d give me in return
Is to know that you’ll be there to do the same for me
When the tables turn

And if you need to cry go on and I, I will cry along with you,
I’ve given you what I have but still I know the best thing I can do
Is just pray for you

I’ll carry you
I’ll take you to Jesus on my knees
