Shoulders by For King and Country

I look up to the mountains
Does my strength come from the mountains?
No, my strength comes from God
Who made heaven, and earth, and the mountains
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
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
You mend what once was shattered
And You turn my tears to laughter
Your forgiveness is my fortress
Oh Your mercy…

  1. Every time I hear this song it makes me cry.
    My strength comes from God. I don’t have to see it to believe. Because I know it was true. I knew it was true long before I got cancer. I have survived 2 Lymphoma cancers 3 times. I currently am surviving Heart failure was is a result of the traditional cancer treatments I had. As best we can tell I am among the 8% of survivors. Traditional cancer treatments halted and killed cancer cells but prayer, nutrition boosted by true, non-gmo, whole food supplements and rest is what has helped me to be a longterm survivor.
