Shoulders

For King and Country

VERSE 1

When confusion’s my companion

And despair holds me for ransom

I will feel no fear

I know that You are near

When I’m caught deep in the valley

With chaos for my company

I’ll find my comfort here

‘Cause I know that You are near

 

CHORUS

My help comes from You

You’re right here, pulling me through

You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders

Your shoulders

My help comes from You

You are my rest, my rescue

I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

Your shoulders

 

VERSE 2

You mend what once was shattered

And You turn my tears to laughter

Your forgiveness is my fortress

Oh Your mercy is relentless

 

BRIDGE

My help is from You

Don’t have to see it to believe it

My help is from you

Don’t have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it’s true

One story about "Shoulders"

  • Betty Heide says:

    After I fell and severely hurt my right knee and was off work for a month this sng carried me through. This was about a year ago. Today my 5 day old Great grand daughter had open heart surgery. We had many, many prayer warriors praying for her. This was the song that went through my head the whole time she was in surgery. The Drs. fixed what was broken in record time and we know that our God was there guiding the surgeons hands. Amazingly enough as I was going to the store, this song began to play. Thank you God.
