His left arm is under my head
and his right arm embraces me.
Don't abandon lifeDon't step away
Don't give up that tune
That you never could play
If you're folding your tent
And the gas pipes groan
If every bone rattles
Through nights all alone
Well you're tougher than leather
No old burlap sack
Not some hard scrabble weeds
Growing up through the cracks
Don't you know, you're never too old
You're never too old to hold somebody...

The poor are shunned by all their relatives
how much more do their friends avoid them!
Though the poor pursue them with pleading,
they are nowhere to be found.
Truth is nowhere to be found,
and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
The LORD looked and was displeased
that there was no justice.
The shepherds will have nowhere to flee,
the leaders of the flock no place to escape.
~ Jeremiah 25
