Sometimes, Lord, I feel so weary
With the burdens that I bear.
It seems I’m always on my own now,
Obstacles are everywhere.
People say I need to trust you,
Learn You always keep Your word,
But that’s hard for me to do, Lord
After all that has occurred.
Faith is hard to believe in.
No one’s ever followed through
With promises they’ve made me,
Regardless of the good I do.
How can I trust another
Who has broken my heart,
And betrayed the things I stand for,
And has ripped my soul apart?
How do I forgive another
Who has caused me so much pain?
How do I turn off my anger
And find a way to obtain
Peace that comes with acceptance,
Love that comes with sacrifice,
Knowledge to resolve my struggles,
And a “self” that would suffice.
Come, Lord, help me with my burdens.
Give me strength to face the years.
Help me learn to surrender
To Your will my greatest fears.
