Lyrics

I have walked on crooked highways
Felt the anger in my soul
I have fought unrighteous battles
And achieved no greater goal
Stood defiant in my pride
And unleashed a trembling rage
Came face to face with God
And that's when I turned the page
That was the day I laid my burden down
The day I laid my burden down

When confronted with my sin
I stood proud as any man
Heard the thunder of the Lord
And I could no longer stand
Mercy, Mercy was my cry
Then I felt so safe and sound
The day I laid my burden down
The day I laid my burden down

I was touched by grace and truth
And my sins could shame no more
Was forgiven by the Mighty
And shown an open door
Like a sailor comin home
Form a hostile distant shore
The day I laid my burden down
The day I laid my burden down
And some day I'm going home
To get my servant's crown
The day I lay my burden down
The day I lay my burden down
