Lean Hard


Psalm 55:22  Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you.

“Child of My love, lean hard,

And let Me feel the pressure of thy care;

I know thy burden, child, I shaped it;

Poised it in My own hand, made no proportion

in its weight to thine unaided strength;

For even as I laid it on, I said

I shall be near, and while he leans on Me,

This burden shall be Mine, not his;

So shall I keep My child within the circling

arms of My own love.

Here lay it down, nor fear to impose it on a

shoulder which upholds the government of


Yet closer come; thou art not near enough;

I would embrace thy care so I might feel My

child reposing on My breast.

Thou lovest Me? I know it. Doubt not then;

But, loving Me, Lean Hard.”

-May Prentiss Smith

1 Peter 5:7  casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.
