He Will Carry You

carry-you

There is no problem too big
God cannot solve it
There is no mountain too tall
He cannot move it
There is no storm too dark
God cannot calm it

I know, my sister, that He will carry you

He said,”Come unto Me all who are weary,
and I will give you rest.”

He Will Carry You (Scott Wesley Brown)
