LAY THIS BURDEN DOWN

MY TEARS HAVE BEEN MY FOOD DAY AND NIGHT (Ps 42:3)

IN THESE DAYS OF TROUBLE LORD

OH THE MOUNTAINS THEY SEEM FAR TOO HIGH

BUT I KNOW THERE IS SOMEWHERE I CAN GO

SO TO THE ROCK OF AGES I WILL FLY

HERE I AM LORD BROKEN AND ABUSED

READY TO LAY THIS BURDEN DOWN

HERE I AM WITH NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE

(LORD) PLEASE TAKE IT FROM ME NOW

MY ARMS ARE WEARY LORD

FOR THIS HEARTACHE WELL IT CRUSHES ME

BUT I KNOW THERE IS SOMEWHERE I CAN GO

SO TO THE ROCK OF AGES I WILL FLEE

CHORUS

TEACH ME TO REST IN YOU

AND WITH YOUR OIL OF JOY I WILL SING

FOR I KNOW THERE IS SOMEWHERE I CAN GO

SO TO THE ROCK OF AGES I WILL CLING

BREAK 

CHORUS 2X

LAY THIS BURDEN DOWN

Jesus tells us to come to him with our burdens and He will give us rest (Mt 11:28,29). God is our Burden Bearer and after we have received His comfort, we can comfort others (2 Co 1:3,4), for He exhorts us to carry each other’s burdens (Gal 6:2).

How to maintain good mental health:

1. Rejoice in the presence of the Lord Php 4:5

2. Rely on the power of the Lord Php 4:13

3. Reflect on the provision of the Lord Php 4:19

4. Rest in the peace of the Lord Php 4:7

Circumstances will change but Jesus is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8).
