saw your burden pressing down,
I saw your confusion and saddened frown.
I felt a whisper of
I wanted to see you wear a grin.
So I came and offered my hand,
You accepted and said, that would be grand.
The uphill climb together felt right,
The weight of trial seemed very light.
We kept our eyes upon our King,
Moving forward, we chose to sing!
Of hope and peace through Christ won,
Of the goodness of God’s holy Son!
I looked at you and knew His love,
For I saw the light of God above.
Our journey shared, what I bore for you,
Helped me become a child true.
I knew then that giving brought me,
To understand and truly see.
That happiness is more than I,
It is to hear another’s cry.
To bear together life’s stretching road,
To lift and share the heavy load.
My eyes with tears then saw my way,
The God of all, my staff and stay.
For he bent and carried all with me,
His pain the price to set me
My cry he answered with true love,
That I might pull through and stand above.
True love does not offer less,
seeks to lift, heal and bless.
To be like Christ is to understand,
A burden shared is fine and grand.

"And it came to pass after many days there were a goodly number gathered together at the place of Mormon, to hear the words of Alma. Yea, all were gathered together that believed on his word, to hear him. And he did teach them, and did preach
unto them repentance, and redemption, and faith on the Lord. And it came to pass that he said unto them: Behold, here are the waters of Mormon (for thus were they called) and now, as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people,
and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light; Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in
all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life— Now I say unto you, if this be the desire of your hearts, what have you against being
baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you?" Mosiah 18:7-10
