Lay My Burden Down (Johnson)

Album: Burden
(Johnson)

When hatred is near
Bloodshed and fear begin to bring up the rear

When color of skin divides and upends
Nobody wins, nobody wins

No more sickness, no more sorrow
When I lay my burden down

When I hear those lies
Money and ties can’t buy a disguise

When I hear that news, it gives me the blues
Ain’t got no excuse, you ain’t got no excuse

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
When I lay my burden down

In the words of Dr. King, gotta sweep our streets clean
See just what love will bring, love will bring

All my troubles, still gotta dream
When I lay my burden down
