11. Lay Down My Life

These Simple Truths
by Sidewalk Prophets



 

All your pain
Will be made mine
All your troubles
The tears you cry
Give it up
All that binds
I will place it on my shoulders
And up this hill Iíll climb
Father, give me strength
I know there is no other way
I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you donít understand
But this is part of a greater plan
So I lay down my life for you
This is love
That had to bleed
To bring you mercy
To set you free
You are mine
I am yours
And I will wear your burdens
Just like this crown of thorns
I will take your place
I know there is no other way
I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you donít understand
But this is part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you
Give me all your pride
Give me all your fears
Give me all your secrets
Give me all your tears
Give me all you doubt
Give me all your shame
Watch them wash away
Watch them wash away
Give me all your pride
Give me all your fears
Give me all your secrets
Give me all your tears
Give me all you doubt
Give me all your shame
Watch them wash away
In Jesusí name
I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you donít understand
But this is part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you
Though I know that you donít understand
These scars are part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you
Arms stretched out
Upon this tree
To show true love
To set you free



Behind the Song:
"Lay Down My Life is written from the perspective of Christ, and set in the time period right before He carries the cross up the hill of Calvary to be crucified. Christ knew there was no other way, but suffered immeasurable pain, all for us. ďYou are mine, I am yours, and I will wear your burdens just like this crown of thorns.Ē I have always thought of the cross as the most beautiful tragedy in the history of time. That a perfect innocent man would be so savagely destroyed for us, and yet He loved us enough to set us free from the burden of sin." - Sidewalk Prophets
