Burdens

I dragged my burdens

Up the wicked slope

Bitter words sprouting from my mouth

Darkness gathering in my heart

 

I ignored the offer of help

Though my knuckles were white

And my bones cracked like a whip

My pride was far too stubborn

 

Such foolishness

To plough on alone

When You are always there

To carry me when I fall

 

I let go of the reins

And put my trust in You

When the world becomes too much

Out to You will I cry

 

When I feel the burden pulling me down

I will slip to the floor

Down to my knees

And give it up to You
