A Prayer

When your heart is heavy to heavy to hold,
All the pain and sorrow of a life untold.
Come to the Lord and your tears unfold,
Hold on the Lord of heaven and earth.

When your soul is bowed down with memory of sin,
When your strength and courage are crumbling in.
Hold to the Lord in your soul within,
And hear of his word that whispers your worth.

When your heart is full of the glories of God,
And your lips all full with psalms of laud.
Pause in your heart to remember in sod,
That seed of your tears now grown to mirth.
