He will bear my every burden

    This is a song by Michael McLean

    Like a gentle wind can blow
    The clouds from the sky,
    Like a gentle touch can ease
    The pain of good-bye,
    Like a gentle smile embraces
    Empty souls in lonely places,
    We should be more gentle
    with ourselves.

    Like the friend who gently
    Builds us up when we're down.
    Like a gentle kiss can turn
    Our world around.
    We've been hurt by others often,
    We've forgiven and forgotten.
    We should be as gentle with ourselves,
    If we will see...

    Like the Shepherd leads his flock
    With gentle commands,
    With his gentle voice that
    Only hearts understand,
    One thing we can know for certain,
    He has borne the awful burden
    So we can be gentle with ourselves.

    One thing that I know for certain:
    He will bear my every burden,
    So I can be gentle with myself.
