Tired and Weary, But I’m Coming Lord
I know You love me
I know You truly care
I know You’re my Shepherd
I have no need or want to bear.
I know You’re my Savior
I know You promise
You’ll be with me forever
I know You’re working
I know I can trust You—
if I look real hard
I can see Your hand
but . . . I’m scared.
this trial going on for years
won’t turn out the way I want
I tremble in my fear
not sure I will be able to handle
where we have to walk from here to there.
You say all things work together
for good to those who trust in You
I know I need to trust
I just have no more words to pray
I don’t know what to say
As this goes on another day.
Somewhere in this darkness
I know there is Your light
help me Lord to see You
to seek with all my might.
I choose to believe You’re faithful
I choose to believe You are true
I also choose to believe, You are
the only way and truth.
So, I will take another deep breath
and for another day
I’ll take Your hand once again
trusting You’ll lead my way.
‘Cause the truth is Lord,
I don’t know what else to do
my heart is breaking
my soul is aching
but suddenly, in this tearful stillness
in this prayerful quiet I hear,
“Come to Me my child,
My peace I give to you.”

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
From My Heart to Yours,
