Burdens of life can be heavy
Especially if we carry them alone,
Thinking it shows our worthiness
That we can stand on our own.
Yet if we turn it over to the Father
Who’s power and love are unending,
Willing to lay it all in His hands
And answers to life He’ll be sending.
Laying our burdens at His feet
And feel the peace only He can give,
Alive in the hope of each new day
And His joy in our life to live.
Each day He gives us two choices
The first is to do it our way,
But we’ve tried and we know how it ends
No matter how hard we try each day.
The second choice is a lot easier
Yet we find its so hard to let go,
Lay it all in the hands of the Father
And peace and joy we’ll finally know.
