Carry Me On
Oh carry me on to another place and time,
take from me this painful burden of mine,
lift me up Lord to a higher plateau
that I may at last find your peace to truly know.
For I am tired of body and weary of mind
My soul grows weak and am so tired of trying,
For I see nothing but the darkness surrounding me,
And I feel the pain of my shallow attempts at being free.
For I moan within to this silent self,
As others, in dire straits, I try to help,
All the while forsaking my own needs,
I still fall short in getting them free.
I am worn,
With ravaged heart torn…
Yet, even still in this…I continue to hold on,
Even though…I have seen a glimpse of the final curtain drawn,
So carry me on, and show me the way,
that I may soon see the light of another day.
For I am too tired to carry on….
So you Lord, carry me on,
Oh carry me on…
And renew my faith,
That I may at last find my way….
Oh carry me on….
