Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The load will be lighter

Lean on Him a little!

by Benny Beeharry

Let joy possess you.
When it rains and you are drenched
Say it is a blessing.

When you trust your near and dear
And they let you down
And your eyes are full of tears, your heart of pain
Bless them, pray for them!

When strangers surround you with arms of love
And bright smiles
And you feel enlivened and robust,
Praise Him who acts so subtly.

We till the mind as we till the land.
We take care to grow flowers only.
Some thorns are bound to appear,
Sometimes more thorns than blooms.

Stand still and whimper, and you are possessed by dust and tears.
You give your mind a further chance to tread you down.
The load and the way are yours, accept them!

From somewhere beyond this sun and the moon, and the crowded space
And this stupendous facade,
Someone wants you to lean on Him!

Silently He is renewing your strength
Carrying your load,
Walking besides you, how could he ever leave you?
He knows your limit.
