JESUS CAN

Ricky Atkinson

If I could, I would take away
The troubles weighing heavy on your mind
And in your life.
If I could, I would wipe away
The sorrows that you feel deep down inside
And make them mine.
But there's only just so much
A friend in need can help you through along the way.
But I'm glad to say I know the One
Who will be there to help you when you pray.

If I could, I would take you by the hand
And lead your through this valley wide,
Stand upon the mountain high.
If I could, I would walk you
'Cross the burning desert sand,
Restore your soul to sweeter water
From a better land.
But I'm sure that in my strongest hour
I still could not possess the power
To bring you through the raging fire you must withstand,
But remember, Jesus can.

If I could, I would wipe away
The tears that stain your pillow in the night
And make it right.
If I could, I would lift you up
Above the clouds of doubt and fearful cries
With all my might.
But the truth remains the same,
Though I try my best I'm still a man like you.
But I'm glad to say I know the One
Who will be there to help you make it through.

If I could, I would take you by the hand
And lead your through this valley wide,
Stand upon the mountain high.
If I could, I would walk you
'Cross the burning desert sand,
Restore your soul to sweeter water
From a better land.
But I'm sure that in my strongest hour
I still could not possess the power
To bring you through the raging fire you must withstand,
But remember, Jesus can.
