12. Carry You to Jesus

by Steven Curtis Chapman


I will not pretend to feel the pain youíre going through
I know I cannot comprehend the hurt youíve known
And I used to think it mattered if I understood
But now I just donít know

Well, Iíll admit sometimes I still wish I knew what to say
And I keep looking for a way to fix it all
But we know weíre at the mercy of Godís higher ways
And our ways are so small

But I will carry you to Jesus
He is everything you need
I will carry you to Jesus on my knees

Itís such a privilege for me to give this gift to you
All Iíd ever hope youíd give me in return
Is to know that youíll be there to do the same for me
When the tables turn

And if you need to cry go on and I, I will cry along with you, yeah
Iíve given you what I have but still I know the best thing I can do
Is just pray for you

Iíll carry you
Iíll take you to Jesus on my knees

Behind the Song:
"This was written out of praying many many prayers for some friends of mine as they passed through some real dark times. These are friends who have carried me so many ways to Jesus in my times of need. I wondered what is the very best thing I can do for them. When I see them hurting I want to fix it. I want to get them the right book or get them the right counsel or get them something to fix their problem. I realized the best thing I can do is to say I will carry you to Jesus and pray for you." - Steven Curtis Chapman

(Gal. 6:2; Luke 5:18-20)
