Lay It Down Video
Lay It Down Lyrics

I know you have your problems

‘Cause everybody’s got ‘em

If you get lost in your sorrows

Then you could hit rock bottom

But if you smile in face of trivial things

And you learn to pray when you wanna complain

Stand up straight when the Earth is shaking

And just breathing when you feel afraid

Oh, don’t you know


Those problems you’re worried about

They can’t keep you from living now

When you shake ‘em off and lay ‘em down, down, down

At the cross where your freedom’s found

Oh You can stand up no matter what

March on when times are tough

Be strong and don’t give up

All you need now

Is to shake ‘em off and lay ‘em down

At the cross where your freedom’s found


We all have our seasons

When we get caught up in our feelings

And I know there’s a time for laughter and a time for pain

A time for doubt and a time for faith

But when you believe you can find the strength

So get back up on your feet


Lay it down, lay it down

Why you holding on so tight

Oh, the freedom you will find

When you let go God will take over the fight

Oh, just surrender

And feel what it’s like to be free again
