Lean on Him

”Who is this that comes up from the wilderness, leaning on her beloved?”

S. of Sol. 8:5

Lord, please we need Your support for us! Help us,

support us on every leaning side! We have so many leaning sides?

You are our only support! You are our only Support

in every circumstance! You are always walking by us,

Your mighty arms reach out and Your steady hands lift up

We are weak on

“every leaning side.”

We lean hard on You, We put all the pressure of our needs on You

You know our burden.

You shaped our burden

You Designed it in Your hand;

It’s made for our growing

It’s weight exposes our weakness,

When You laid it on, You said, I will be near,

You ask us to lean on You, You’ll make the burden Yours

Let us feel Your arms of love

We impose ourselves on Your shoulders

We give You all our sorrows, We draw closer to You

Please be nearer

Please embrace our worries

Please embrace our stresses

Let us feel relaxed in Your arms.

Let us feel Your love for us

Keep us from Doubts!

We lean harder into You!

“Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast;

There by His love o’ershaded, Sweetly my soul shall rest.

Hark! ’tis the voice of angels, Borne in a song to me,

Over the fields of glory, Over the jasper sea.

Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast;

There by His love o’ershaded, Sweetly my soul shall rest.

Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe from corroding care,

Safe from the world’s temptations; Sin cannot harm me there.

Free from the blight of sorrow, Free from my doubts and fears;

Only a few more trials, Only a few more tears!

Jesus, my heart’s dear Refuge, Jesus has died for me;

Firm on the Rock of Ages, Ever my trust shall be.

Here let me wait with patience, Wait till the night is o’er;

Wait till I see the morning. Break on the golden shore.
