WITH HIS ARM ABOUT MY SHOULDERS.

Life gets hard and times seem tough
I want to do so much but itís not enough.
Not enough time, not enough to give,
Not enough to love and not enough to live,
But, heh, Iíll get by, Iíll get bolder
Iíll get along Ö.
with His arm about my shoulder.

Days are long, nights are lonely
Oh, for a friend, oh, if only
Why this emptiness I feel?
Why this pain so real?
Days get longer, nights get colder,
But Iíll get along Ö
with His arm about my shoulder.

My love is gone my love is lost
I let it go at a very great cost
Because I knew I would hurt others
If I pursued my selfish endeavours.
God asks us to let Him be our lifeís holder
So, you see, Iíll get along Ö.
with His arm about my shoulder.


The more I can give, the more I can heal
The more He will know just how I feel.
Once He knew this emptiness
Now gives His sweet caress
So Iíll get by as I grow older
Yes, Iíll get alongÖ
with His arm about my shoulder.

Thankyou Jesus!

Wow, so beautiful Evident.

It is hard to find great poetry these days.
Much less with perfect meter and verse.
Like a breath of fresh air in a smog filled world.

Thank you for sharing it with us!
