Lay It Down

Lay It Down....I have :-)



I’ve been looking ‘til my eyes are tired of looking

Listening ‘til my ears are numb from listening

Praying ‘til my knees are sore from kneeling

On the bedroom floor


I know that You know that my heart is aching

I’m running out of tears and my will is breaking

I don’t think that I can carry

The burden of it anymore


All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans

Are slowly slipping through my folded hands


So I’m gonna lay it down

I’m gonna learn to trust You now

What else can I do

Everything I am depends on You

And if the sun don’t come back up

I know Your love will be enough

I’m gonna let it be, I’m gonna let it go

I’m gonna lay it down


I’ve been walking through this world like I’m barely living

Buried in the doubt of this hole I’ve been digging

But You’re pulling me out and I’m finally breathing

In the open air


This room may be dark but I’m finally seeing

There’s a new ray of hope and now I’m believing

That the past is the past and the future’s beginning to look brighter now


‘Cause all of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans

Are safe and secure when I place them in Your hands


So I’m gonna lay it down

I’m gonna learn to trust You now

What else can I do

Everything I am depends on You

And if the sun don’t come back up

I know Your love will be enough



I’m gonna let it be,

I’m gonna let it go

I’m gonna lay it down



I've let go of "what if..." and of my own hopes and dreams.

They are in the Lord's Hands Now.
