“Feelings,” Friend, Mar. 2013, 47


Do you ever feel like crying

Till you’ve filled the room with tears

And you don’t think you can stop them

For months or even years?

Do you ever feel all dried up,

Like your happiness seeped out,

Like your skin is just a hollow shell

That’s walking all about?

Do you ever feel like running

Till you’re very far away,

While hoping that tomorrow

Is better than today?

Then take to God your troubles.

He’ll always understand.

His Son had many troubles;

Nail prints are in His hands.

Bring to God your troubles.

Together you’ll get through.

Jesus Christ is your Redeemer,

And He gave His life for you.
