Where the world comes to study the Bible

My Prayer

My burdens keep me humble
And they teach me to pray.
If I murmur, if I grumble
Forgive the words I say.

Give me strength to just carry
My load day to day.
Just don’t take my burden
Or my cross away.

With the cross on my shoulder
My feet cannot stray.
For my cross leads me onward
To my home so far away.

And I’ll never question
The price I must pay.
But don’t take my burden
Or my cross away.

For I would grow careless
And idle I fear.
My eyes would be dry
I’d never shed a tear.

Lest I forget
That I need You today.
Don’t take my burdens
Or my cross away.
