Weight of the world

The weight of the world, is meant for no man, to bear on his shoulders alone, 
But each man supposes, None can know what I feel, I'd rather it be on my own.
The stress and the challenge and heartache, are a burden meant to be shared.
There may have been truth to this thought, if one Man had not cared.

The weight of the world is heavy, a burd'ning, insurmountable task.
But there is hope for the wearied heart, there is one that we can ask
As a struggle we face alone, we will oft find ourselves on our knees,
The one is our Savior Jesus Christ, and we only have to say please.

Please, and we have to show action, lift the world as much as we can
For the way that he saves is not easy, that was never the plan.
After all you can do, he said to us all, That's when my mercy takes hold
We must lift the world, but he strengthens us all and gives rest to our souls.

We each have a trial to face, a hardship we must bear,
For if we did not, we'd never know, how much our Savior cared.
Love must be shown through action, and obedience shown through love
If we e'er have hope to enter, the Celestial world above.

Whispering Hearts

Every heart speaks in whispers, if we would only hear
It's possible to find a way, you can hear it clear.

If we silence all our worries, drown out all our doubt
You might just be surprised, what you'll find out.

The heart can be a mighty voice, if we just let it speak
It will tell us what to do, how to get what we seek.

Love is the answer, but what is the question?
Let me point out, one ti-ny suggestion.

If you say it like you mean it, and few rarely do
Then you can't just say the words, you have to prove they are true.

I love you, doesn't have to mean, a romantic bond you share
It just means that you show someone, that you really care.

It could be your best friend, or someone you've never met
Each of us know how to love, just some of us forget.

When you look for the good in life, you'll find it never ends
Whether in the warmth of a loved ones hand, or the hug from a friend.

Do all that you can this year, to quiet all your fears
And you might find, your own heart, has whispers for you to hear.
