09. Lay It Down

The Shelter
by Jars of Clay



 

Oh, we’ll never be short on people
And we’ll never be short on trouble
It’s a well-worn path, so how on earth can we feel alone

Why carry on our own what’s common to all men
Why drag your bag of bones to hell and back again
Why carry on our own what’s common to all men
Look around, lay it down

Oh, we’ll never be short on good news
And somebody to tell our story to
And we’ll never be short on redemption
And light for the dark

© 2010 Sara Groves Music (ASCAP) (adm. by Music Services) / Ben Gowell Music (ASCAP) / Little Larry Sellers (BMI)

Behind the Song:
CHARLIE LOWELL: It's in the giving up, the laying down, that we find life and purpose- not in the fixing and controlling. A continual, perpetual push against our human nature.

DAN HASELTINE: Our shoulders aren’t strong enough for the burdens we carry. Our lives are to be lived in the constant act of distributing the weight of our burdens and others burdens.

STEVE MASON: There is power in relating to each other in our weaknesses. There we can find the strength promised by God in community.

MATT ODMARK: I couldn't be happier to have the words of Sara Groves on the Shelter. You have always spoke my heart Sara, Thanks for being Shelter to me.
