Larry Norman – Lay My Burden Down lyrics

I wanna climb that mountain, cross over to the promised
Land.
I'm gonna climb that mountain, cross over to the
Promised land.
There's a scarlet fountain where once the cross did
Stand.

My days are numbered, but there's no sorrow when I
Sleep.
My days are surely numbered, there's no sorrow when I
Sleep.
He comforts those who stay within his keep.

Life is filled with mystery, our future's in his hands
And God controls the history more than we can
Understand
He lets the devil shake us just to wake us from our
Dreams
But he never will forsake us, no matter what it
Sometimes seems.

Well my heart is heavy but I'm standing on the solid
Rock.

Yeah my heart is heavy but I'm standing on the solid
Rock.
The sheep know the shepherd when they hear their master
Talk.

Satan is our enemy, darkness is his power.
Yes, Satan is our enemy, and darkness is his power.
He roams the streets like a lion seeking whom next to
Devour.

Misdirection, distraction are subtle weapons he can
Use.
Misdirection, distraction are subtle weapons he can
Use.
'Cause you can think your hands are sinless
When indifference is what you choose.

Yeah, when my work is done I'm gonna lay my burden
Down.
When my work is done I'm gonna lay my burden down.
I'm gonna leave my troubles, gonna head for higher
Ground.
