will you carry me

Will You Carry Me

Written by Adam Bannister

VERSE 1       

I turned my back to all that I’ve known

I gave my yes and followed you out into the unknown

It wasn’t easy but it was the right choice

To give up my life and start seeking your voice

 

PRE-CHORUS 1

But sometimes still along the way

I stumble fall and lose my way

Yet when I lift my eyes to You

Your light it lights my way

 

CHORUS 1

Will You carry me

Over the mountains

Down through the Valleys

Help me through the dark of the alley

When I’m flying up into the clouds 

Or when I feel I’m falling fast towards the ground

Will You carry me

 

VERSE 2

Often I look back on my life

And see how You have worked and helped me through all my pain tears and strife

In my loneliness You comforted me

You’ve always clothed me filled my heart and gave all I need

 

PRE-CHORUS 2

So why do I still doubt Your ways

My humanness gets in the way 

I know that it’s not an excuse 

Please grant me strength today

CHORUS 2

Will You carry me

When scared and I doubt

When my heart aches 

Choosing things I should live without

Will You carry when I have nothing left

Or when I’m struggling to take the next step 

Will You carry me

 

BRIDGE

I can’t do it on my own

I fear every great unknown

Fighting a war I can’t see or ignore

Me is not what You would do

You’re the one who always comes through

Doing just what You say you’ll do

 

CHORUS 3      

You will carry me

Over the mountains

Down through the Valleys

Help me through the dark of these alleys

When I’m flying up into the clouds                  

Or when I feel I’m falling fast towards the ground

You will carry me

When scared and I doubt

When my heart aches         

Choosing things I should live without

You will carry when I have nothing left

Or when I’m struggling to take the next step 

You will carry me

Transition

Transition

Written by Adam Bannister

 

VERSE 1

Walking

Down a path You set before me and 

Praying

Every day because the battles are 

Brand new

In the fire You still set the 

Path before me

 

Safely 

In Your will is the best place for me 

To be

You won’t give me more Lord than I can 

Carry

So I trust You with my life please set the 

Path before me

 

VERSE 2

Worry

It’s got nothing on my savior 

Jesus

Who takes it cast on Him if you

Let Him

Move within your heart and let the 

Chains be broken 

 

Saving

I know just the man for that and there’s 

Healing

In His name right where You’re at so call

On Him

Right here and right now and let the

Chains be broken

 

PRE-CHORUS

As the season starts to fade and everything I know

Once again begins to change I cling Lord to Your hope

And set my eyes upon You so I’ll rest in perfect peace

In every step I take upon this path out to the deep

 

CHORUS 1

Listen to my heart and hear the worry it contains

Yes I want to go but still a part of me it wants to stay

Here where it is safe and I already know my way

Help me through this transition

To follow where You go though where You go I do not know

I have no control but only now my heart is knowing so

As I take a step and pray the ground is still below 

Help me through this transition

Yes Lord is my decision

 

CHORUS 2

To follow You

To follow You

To follow You

To follow You, to follow You, (forevermore)

 

VERSE 3

Guide me

As I head in this direction and

Try me

Test my heart and then correct every 

Longing

Place them all in line so I will 

Walk in Your gaze --- towards

 

Heaven                      

Where I’ll worship You forever and 

Find rest

No more pain here in the night but

Only Joy 

Joy forevermore and I will

Walk in Your gaze

Potter and Clay

Written by Adam Bannister

 

VERSE 1

Yet You, Lord, are our Father

We are the Clay and You are the Potter

We are all, the work of Your hand

 

CHORUS

Mold my heart to Your ways

Set the Refining fire ablaze

Though painful at times You are present and standing beside me within the flames

Soften our hearts made of stone

Let us bring praise to Your throne

Cleanse us and wash us Lord now with the blood, so we may be like Your son --- Jesus

 

BRIDGE

Mold Me

Shape Me

However You choose

Potter

Father

I was made by You
