Music Monday: "Lay Me Down"

I have been enjoying Chris Tomlin's new CD "Burning Lights" these past few weeks. I've listened to it several times, and can't say which song is my favorite. I posted a few weeks ago about "Whom Shall I Fear?" I've still been enjoying that song too. I like this song because of the idea that I need to lay down my life and give it back to Him. It truly all is God's, isn't it? I do belong to God alone. He can take my life and let it shine. I just have to allow Him to work in me. I really like the bridge-- "It will be my JOY to say, Your will, Your way..." That is how I want my life to be, and it's a great song to sing all day!






Chris Tomlin - Lay Me Down Lyrics

Verse 1:
With this heart open wide
From the depths from the heights
I will bring a sacrifice
With these hands lifted high
Here my song here my cry
I will bring a sacrifice
I will bring a sacrifice

Chorus:
I lay me down
I’m not my own
I belong to you alone
Lay me down
Lay me down
Hand on my heart
This much is true
There’s no life apart from you
Lay me down
Lay me down
Oh oh oh
Lay me down
Lay me down

Verse 2:
Letting go of my pride
Giving up all my rights
Take this life and let it shine
Take this life and let it shine

Chorus

Bridge:
It will be my joy to say
Your will
Your way
It will be my joy to say
Your will
Your way
always
(x3)

Chorus
(x2)

John 10:17-18

The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”


1 Peter 4:2
As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.

1 John 2:17
The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
