Shoulders Lyrics

VERSE 1

When confusion’s my companion

And despair holds me for ransom

I will feel no fear

I know that You are near

When I’m caught deep in the valley

With chaos for my company

I’ll find my comfort here

‘Cause I know that You are near

 

CHORUS

My help comes from You

You’re right here, pulling me through

You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders

Your shoulders

My help comes from You

You are my rest, my rescue

I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

Your shoulders

 

VERSE 2

You mend what once was shattered

And You turn my tears to laughter

Your forgiveness is my fortress

Oh Your mercy is relentless

 

BRIDGE

My help is from You

Don’t have to see it to believe it

My help is from you

Don’t have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it’s true

Shoulders

  • This song… Is so anointed. That every time I hear it played sends me to my knees. How God is so good and trusting. He’s right here pulling us through, every situation. I so encourages me that one day Joey my son, will come back to Jesus. And begins singing again for his Glory.. one day Amen!..
    Please left him up in prayer guys. I just got to see this video and it brings me to trust him and not myself or anyone but him.. God is still tugging at my vision to finish what he started in me. I love you guys.. from a mom that loves.. God Bless..

  • I was diagnosed on April 2nd of this year with breast cancer…there are many songs on Life 102.5 that mean a lot to me, but this song SHOULDERS is the one that meant so much to me and still does….i cry each time i hear it, as i KNOW that HE has carried my sickness on HIS shoulders and i will be forever grateful for all HE has done for me…i start radiation next wed. Nov. 4th and will be making daily trips to UW madison, 5 days a week for 6 weeks and i know what station i will be listening to and what once again, will lift me up and give me hope. Whenever i was down, or needed reassurance that a test would turn out ok…i would pray to have this song played, and right at the moment before we got to the hospital for my results after surgery, after listening all the way in….this was the last song i heard played before we reached the hospital……i did however, end up with partial mastectomy, and bi-lateral reduction and lumpectomy….and my DCIS ended up being stage 1 invasive..but again, God is so good and they got it all…as even the 3 lymph nodes that were taken, the one had such a micro piece of cancer, it was hard my one oncologist said to fathom it was so small thank you so much for your ministry to others through music…..i call this my THEME SONG!!!!!! God bless!
