Lay down your burdens


Lay down your burdens
I have been with you all along
I am here to accept them
to love them
into a shape that heals you
to love you


Lay down your burdens
I will hold them
I will hold you
heal you

My hands are open
all you have courage,
or desperation
to give Me.
All you can release
I will hold

And when it is gone
rest awhile
feel the space to fill
like a well, upflowing with ground water
filtered through rocks and healthy soil
Let it be, Beloved
Let you be.
