Letting Go

Trading Sacks


I have traveled many miles

weary, worn am I.

I carry my burdens in a sack.

They weigh me down, I sigh.

I must drop this sack.

Let them go, the Master cries!

You carry Mine, I'll take yours!

He looks me in the eye.

I see love, love unimaginable.

We trade sacks, and I fly!
