Lyrics:
(Eris Ford)
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

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
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'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

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
Close to You
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

(IMRSQD)
What is man that You'd send Your One and only Son to come redeem the times?
Who am I that You shed your blood when I know I'd never shed a drop of mine?
I could never understand this
I take Your mercy for granted
Live then You die like what happened?
I'm plenty damaged
They couldn't fix with a bandage
Oh what a waste
Life eternal far away
In Your presence I am safe
Look at darkness start to wane
All my burdens sort of fade
Oh Your word is my escape
I could never understand it, Father all these levels, levels to Your grace
I was wicked, filthy, wretched, swear it, ’til the blood of Jesus came erase
Oh now watch me levitate
Mercy covered all my shame
Throw that victory on the grave
Oh I'm free from all my chains
I am safe when I'm close to You
Hold me down, ‘till that trumpet sound
Looking in the clouds for Jehovah now
I am stronger now that I'm close to…

(Eris Ford)
You
Close to You
Close to You
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
