When this ole mortal body grows weary
and my mind is stressed with worries
I look to Jesus my brother for comfort
as He died for me on the cross.
When burdens weigh me down
and soon I feel my spirit drown.
I look to Jesus my brother for strength
as He bore my burdens on the cross.
When I am deep in my darkest hours
I search and cling to the life of bower.
I look to Jesus for my guiding light,
He alone shines through a dark night.
Then my cares and worries subside
Knowing my Lord is by my side.
I look to Jesus my brother for peace,
He will surely meet my every need.
He knew me while I was still in the womb
and He is the Healer of my wounds.
I humbly bow and seek His presence,
only in Him can I find a life worth living.
