Music That Matters - Carry You To Jesus

Today's musical selection is "Carry You to Jesus" from Steven Curtis Chapman's CD Declaration. Music Chick reflects:

This song describes the essence of a faith-based friendship. There have been times in my life when I have felt at a loss as to help a friend through a difficult time – whether it be divorce, or the loss of a loved one, or abuse, or whatever. Likewise, there have been times when friends have asked me how they can help in the midst of my own despair... and I have been unable to answer that for them also. But the greatest gift that we can give each other as brothers and sisters in Christ is to love each other enough to pray for each other... because while we may not know what our friends need, or know how to tell our friends what we need from them, God knows what we need... and will provide it if we ask, whether ask for ourselves or on behalf of someone else.

Album - Declaration

I will not pretend to feel the pain you're going through
I know I cannot comprehend the hurt you've known
And I used to think it mattered if I understood
But now I just don't know

Well, I'll admit sometimes I still wish I knew what to say
And I keep looking for a way to fix it all
But we know we're at the mercy of God's higher ways
And our ways are so small

But I will carry you to Jesus
He is everything you need
I will carry you to Jesus on my knees

It's such a privilege for me to give this gift to you
All I'd ever hope you give me in return
Is to know that you'll be there to do the same for me
When the tables turn


And if you need to cry go on and I, I will cry along with you. yeah
I've given you what I have but still I know the best thing I can do
Is just pray for you


I'll carry you
I'll take you to Jesus on my knees
