Lay My Burden Down (Herring Caroline)

When I lay my burden down There'll be no mourners outside my window Put my body in the ground Because my spirit will be free at last And I'll be flying in the darkness I'll ride the wind without a sound When I lay my burden down When I see that great green valley The haunting shadows will fade behind me A golden highway stretched out before me And I will walk in to the sunrise With the lion and the lamb And the beasts of the field When your secret is revealed When I lay my burden down Could be tomorrow God has not told me And now I will love With all the heart, soul and strength within me As a mother and a lover And a sister and a daughter And then one day Over Jordan I'll see angels hear trumpets sound When I lay my burden down When I lay my burden down
