Lay Down My Life - (by Sidewalk Prophets)

Jesus really did do everything for us - including laying down His life for us.
Think about that tonight...either for the first time, or the 100th time...It's amazing either way.

[I know I recently posted another Sidewalk Prophets song, but this one also seemed to hit me tonight, and I wanted to share it!  (No Audio for you this time, though!)]
--------------------------------------

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 I’ll climbFather, give me strength
I know there is no other way

CHORUS
I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
So I lay down my life for you

Vs. 2-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

CHORUS
I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
So I lay down my life for you

BRIDGE-
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
(repeat)


In Jesus’ name

CHORUS

I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
So I lay down my life for you

Arms stretched out
Upon this tree
To show true love
To set you free
