A while back, I was going through a really bad time, and I just felt like I couldn’t go on anymore. The only way I made it through was by asking God to “carry” me. I had to keep reminding myself to rely on Him, and I wrote this poem to help me remember that I could trust His fully mot to let me go.
Jesus, save me from this pain.
Help me to stand up once more.
Help me to walk again;
Pick me up from on the floor.
I’ve fallen and I can’t regain
My strength as oft before.
This time I can’t get up again;
I can’t do it anymore.
Jesus, please hold me in your hand,
Just as the Bible said.
Help me, right now, to understand
The pain inside my head.
I can’t go on, just on my own –
I need you to carry me.
No longer can I walk alone:
This fall has made me see.
So Jesus, hold me in your hand,
Hold me above the pain.
During this time that I can’t stand,
Shelter me from the rain.
Hold me and guard me from all fear;
Cover me with your wings.
Protect me Lord, when danger’s near,
And from all painful things.
Lord, you are strong when I am weak.
Give me your strength inside.
Your love and shelter now I seek.
Under your wings I hide.
Jesus, please hold me close to you.
I need to know you’re there.
I need to feel your love anew;
I need to feel your care.
