Help In Troubled Waters. I've Got My Shoulders For You!

Today's worship corner, we are throwing it all the way back to 1998 with one of Kirk Franklin’s hit Grammy winning songs from his NU Nation project album. 



SONG TITLE: LEAN ON ME
LYRICS BY: KIRK FRANKLIN

This is for that little child that has no father
For that man who doesn't have a place to stay
And for that little boy, living with AIDS
You can lean on me!

There's a man
Standing on the corner
He had no home
Had no food
His blue skies are gone
Can you hear him cryin' out?

And there's a girl
Searching for her father and a friend
Praying that someday the storm will end
But instead of walking away
Open up your heart and say

I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see (I can see your tears)
Your tears (yes)
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
(Yes I will)
Friends are there to catch you when you fall
(Here's my shoulder)
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

Oh, there's a child
Who is sick and begging to be free
But there is no cure for his disease
He looks up to his mother
And she holds (hold) his hand (his hand)
Prayin' that someday
The sun will shine again
And the pain will end

I am here
You don't have to worry
I can see your tears
I'll be there in a hurry when you call
Friends are there to catch you when you fall
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me (lean on me)

Tell me how, how can I love Jesus
When I've never seen His face?
I see you dying
And I turn and walk away (away)

Hold my hand
Let me take you to a friend of mine
Who will, who will, who will ease your mind
'Cause Jesus loves you more than you'll ever know
Mighty God!
Open up your heart and say (say)

I am here
(I am here)
So you don't have to worry
(You don't have to worry)
I can see your tears (I can see)
(I can see your tears)
I'll be there in a hurry when you call (when you call)
I have knock there when you call
I'ma knock there
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
(When you're down and out just call on me)
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me
Yes, you're my friend (call on me, call on me)
But you're also my brother
Here's my shoulder, you can lean on me

 ***


I pray that you find a shoulder to lean on today, and for the rest of your life.

Amen.
