Send a Burden

A burden I would steadfast bear

And watch Your faithful plan supply

But easy is my given path

Perhaps, I scarcely need my guide.

 

Chain fetters on me and dismiss

Need not be gentle on this boy

O God, you know me better than this

Yet still I’m lifted on wings of joy

Let me fight through these weeds

Dig myself out, let me toil.

Just give what is coming my way to me.

Yet each day I’m planted in new soil

Why O Lord,

When justice cuts to bone,

You send me not to noose nor sword

But invite me to your throne.
