Sustained By Thee
Lord, though one life may look better than another,
let us not take lightly the burdens of our sisters and brothers.
Each life has its certain struggles and pain,
that throughout its passing will surely reign.
The outside trappings of those we might see,
only hide the unseen cares of lives sustained by Thee.
Let us not forget what our friends daily walk through,
and take their petitions freely and humbly before You.
Lord, help me remember how fragile life can be,
and how unsteady are all our paths to eternity.
Help us see each other as forgiven and free,
You see us all the same and promise us liberty.
Psalm 55:22 "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will
sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall."
