Caroline Herring – Lay My Burden Down lyrics

When I lay my burden down
There'll be no mourners outside my window
Put my body in the ground
Because my spirit will be free at last
And I'll be flying in the darkness
I'll ride the wind without a sound
When I lay my burden down

When I see that great green valley
The haunting shadows will fade behind me
A golden highway stretched out before me
And I will walk in to the sunrise
With the lion and the lamb
And the beasts of the field
When your secret is revealed

When I lay my burden down
Could be tomorrow
God has not told me
And now I will love
With all the heart, soul and strength within me
As a mother and a lover
And a sister and a daughter

And then one day
Over Jordan
I'll see angels hear trumpets sound
When I lay my burden down
When I lay my burden down
