I Lay It Down

by Janis Gaines

Lord, take all my weariness
Take all my bitterness

I lay it down,
I lay it down…

Lord, take all my sin and shame
Take all my cruel pain

I lay it down,
I lay it down…

Lord, take all my rage and fears
Take all my lonely tears

I lay it down,
I lay it down…

Lord, take all my worldly gain
Take all my hateful blame

I lay it down,
I lay it down…

Lord, take all that I have lost
And redeem it at the cross

I lay it down,
I lay it down…

Lord, I take all you gave to me
And give it back to thee

I lay it down,
I lay it down…
