Christ is Waiting

The journey’s left me humble,
With no strength left to stand.
As I begin to stumble,
The Father takes my hand.

He keeps me from falling
And He sets me in His ways,
So I follow His calling
And I set my heart to praise.

Though I have a heavy burden,
Christ lifts it from my shoulder.
He smooths the way I walk in,
And He make my meek heart bolder.

The easy yoke He offers,
Yes, the burden taken, light.
And though there may be scoffers,
His truth is my delight.

So when life leaves you wanting
And your burden weighs you down,
Remember Christ is waiting
To exchange it for a crown.
