How Heavy Is The Weight

O Lord:

How heavy is the weight
So many people carry
That no earthly weight loss program
Can reduce

And how many shoulders stoop
And minds struggle to function
Under the crushing mass of grief
And earthly sorrow

And we
We judge the outside

And from the gaunt and haggard ugliness inside us
Add daily to the life-stealing weight others bear

So, missing the chance

And responsibility

This life gives us

To help shoulder the weight
