Lay ‘Em Down

Posted on Wednesday, May 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

stress-28019378I’m on a private retreat – yesterday and today – but I can’t stay alone. 

To tired, weary, worn out people like me and you, Jesus Christ said, “If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest.” 1

It’s a message many of us need to hear.

Yesterday I sent this song to a friend, and today I’m leaving it with the rest of you mysilentscream readers.

Lay ‘Em Down” by Needtobreathe keeps echoing through my mind, so here it is so it will echo through yours too.

Come down to the river
Come and let yourself in
Make good on a promise
To never hurt again
If you’re lost and lonely
Broken down
Bring all of your troubles
Come lay ’em down

All you sinners
And the weak at heart
All the helpless
On the boulevards
Wherever you are now
Whatever evil you’ve found
Bring all of your troubles
Come lay ’em down

We’re all tied to the same old failings
Finding shelter in things we know
We’re all dirty like corrupted small towns
We’ll bring our troubles
Bring our troubles
And lay ’em down

All you rich men
And the high above
All of those with
And without love
All you burdened
And broken down
Bring all of your troubles
Come lay ’em down
Come lay ’em down
Come lay ’em down
Come lay ’em down

(Come lay ’em down) Come all you broken
(Come lay ’em down) Come all you helpless
(Come lay ’em down) Bring all your burdens
(Come lay ’em down) Just lay ’em down
(Come lay ’em down) Come all you broken
(Come lay ’em down) Come all you helpless
(Come lay ’em down) Bring all your troubles
(Come lay ’em down) Come lay ’em down

Come lay ’em down
Come lay ’em down
Come lay ’em down
