Lay Your Burden Down
- Karyn Oliver, copyright 2018

Lay your burden down
We all need some rest
We’ve been walking uphill for a long, long time
It seems like the journey won’t end
When you walk all alone it can feel like
There’s no one else left
So lay your burden down

Lay your burden here
Lay it here with me
I will carry you if you carry her
She will carry the next
We will carry each other until
There is no more need
So lay your burden here with me

Take a breath, Take a nap
Read a book, Sing a song
Take care of yourself, ‘cuz we need you

Phone a friend, Have a laugh
Take a walk, Get some sun
Take care of yourself, ‘cuz we need you

Lay your burden down…
