The days were long and endless
As I traveled down the Road.
I could barely stand it
Underneath my heavy load.
Then I looked up at the Savior
With His hands opened wide.
He said, “Come to Me you helpless one.
I will take you by My side.”
I saw the Love of Jesus,
And His great Power,
And the blessed Wonder
Of each passing hour.
I know Jesus came to save me
From all my sins and strife,
And now He helps me carry
My load all through my life.
