Everlasting Arms

This poem is written for my sweet husband, Lee. His prayers over the years have warmed my heart and given me a picture window to see into his.

When you pray for me
I learn your heart
I am captivated
From the start

Your words lift me up
When you call my name
Before The Lord
I am forever changed

By the love you feel
for me inside
My heavy burdens
Now reside

Within your heart
And they have become
Your deepest concern
Because we are one

Your arms so strong
They comfort me
But when we both are down
We trust in Thee

Our God is always there
to cover us
It is in His promise
That we trust

So I will pray over you
As you have prayed for me
His abiding love
You too will see

That our burdens
Aren’t heavy
And our yoke is light
Leaning on the everlasting arms of Christ
