Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Dear Lord, I pray that Thou wilt help me bear my heavy load; Please share it with me, precious Lord, till I walk heaven’s road.
Verse 2: For in this world I know I need a thorn within my side. On Thee, my God, I will depend, and in Thy grace abide.
Verse 3: If in this life I had no care to burden me each day, I may not long for heaven’s home as I pass by this way.
Verse 4: So, my dear God, I do not ask that I be burden free; Just hold my hand in Thine, dear Lord, and lead me home to Thee.
