    I Am Learning, Lord

    My life has taken many falls
    And tumbles 'long the way.
    The many trials have left me
    In a sure state of dismay.

    For with each trial, I tried alone
    To tend, and soothe, and mend,
    Instead of giving them to God -
    And on Him just depend ...

    But, I am Learning Lord

    It seems I was determined
    To carry all the load.
    I longed for smoother pathways.
    Yet, I walked a rocky road.

    Little did I understand,
    God waited patiently
    To pave a new beginning
    With a better life for me.

    But, I am Learning Lord

    It took a real disaster
    To bring me to my knees;
    To finally call upon the Lord
    And say, "God help me, please."

    He came with no delaying,
    With strong arms that could hold -
    The weight of all my burdens;
    He gladly took the load.

    and, I am Learning Lord

    What a needless cross I carried,
    All because I could not see -
    What a friend I have in Jesus,
    And the love He has for me.

    Peace I find when troubles hover,
    Though' the outcome is unknown.
    For if yet the road is rocky,
    I won't walk it all alone.

    For, I am Learning Lord
