Lyrics:
I come and I lay down my burdens
I know that I do not deserve it
But You took it all with Your purchase
So God I will search for Your purpose
I just want to live for Your service
And I don't mean just on the surface, no
But I know I don't do it perfect
So I come to You when I'm hurting

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I'm close to You

Every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I'm close to You
Every thing that I hold to
It levitates when I’m close to You

Close to You
When I’m close to You
Close to You

I've counted up the cost I know
I cannot do it on my own
So Father I approach Your throne
Acknowledge You’re my only hope
I give You my anxieties
And all the worry that’s inside of me
In You alone I'm finding peace
In You alone my mind’s at ease

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I'm close to You

Every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I'm close to You
Every thing that I hold to
It levitates when I’m close to You

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I'm close to You
