I’ll Carry You

Here is a song that was inspired by the poem “Footprints:. This poem reminds us that at times when we may feel forsaken by all, Jesus is still present to comfort us in our hour of need, so we are never really alone.

Carry You
Isaiah 46: 3-4, Psalm 121:5

Verse 1
When you feel down
And there’s no one around
I’ll carry you
When you’re feeling the pain
And all seems in vain
I’ll carry you
When you feel like the world
Is not on your side
I’ll carry you
When you’re feeling the bruise
Of the wound in your heart
I’ll carry you

Chorus
You are my child
The delight of my heart
The sun will not smite you by day
I’ll carry you
In the warmth of my arms
And the moon
Will not smite you by night

Verse 2
When hurts do arise
And your life flashes by
I’ll carry you
When others are smiling
But you’re crying inside
I’ll carry you
When injustice continues
And seems unresolved
I’ll carry you
When prayers seem unanswered
And nothing makes sense
I’ll carry you

Bridge
I’m here to comfort you
My precious child
You don’t have to hide
Your emotions from me
Like a young lamb
Running back to the shepherd
I’ll protect you
From the dangers you see

Chorus

FOOTPRINTS  (Original Poem)

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed He was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from His life. For each scene He noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One belonging to Him and the other to the LORD.

When the last scene of His life flashed before Him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of His life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times of His life.

This really bothered Him and He questioned the LORD about it. LORD you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.

The LORD replied, my precious, precious child, I Love you and I would never leave you! During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.


Carolyn Carty, 1963
