Carry Me

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of the fourth studio album by Contemporary Christian-Folk recording artist Josh Wilson. He penned the song with Nashville songwriter Ben Glover, whose other credits include Colton Dixon's "Love Has Come for Me" and Lee Brice's "Hard To Love."
  • Wilson said of the song: "The truth is, we all need Jesus to carry us. We are lost without him... Maybe you struggle with anxiety. Maybe you're dealing with something else, like divorce, abuse, financial troubles, or doubt. Perhaps everything seems to be going well in your life, but even if that's the case, Jesus is the only one who can sustain you, whether you realize it or not. Colossians 1:17 reminds us, 'He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.'"
