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

CHORUS

BREAK 

CHORUS 2X

LAY THIS BURDEN DOWN

Notice in the pic that Satan is right beside this servant’s ear putting lies in his mind to destroy his faith in the Lord. When he lays down his burden, he’ll find freedom from Satan and his fears. 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:

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