My Prayer

Source unknown

My burdens keep me humbleAnd they teach me to pray. If I murmur, if I grumbleForgive the words I say.

Give me strength to just carryMy load day to day. Just don't take my burdenOr my cross away.

With the cross on my shoulderMy feet cannot stray. For my cross leads me onwardTo my home so far away.

And I'll never questionThe price I must pay. But don't take my burden Or my cross away.

For I would grow carelessAnd idle I fear. My eyes would be dryI'd never shed a tear.

Lest I forgetThat I need You today. Don't take my burdensOr my cross away.
