Cast your burden upon the Lord,
and He will sustain you; He will
never let the righteous fall.
Psalms 55:22

Learning From The Footprints

Where there's just one set of footprints,
It was then you carried me;
I learn, from looking back on them,
There's a pattern there, I see...

For during all those trying times
When I couldn't even stand,
My faith was growing stronger
With each touch of Your hand.

You were always there to help me,
With a shepherd's gentle care;
When I could go no farther,
Lord, you were always there.

You picked me up, and carried me,
Like a babe, in Your loving arms;
Keeping me close to Your heart,
And safe from all the world's harm.

I thank you, Lord, for what I've learned---
For the promise you have given;
To lead me, or else carry me,
Till the day we meet in heaven!
