Taken from the album Shipwrecks & Islands by Phil Baggaley, Dave Clifton and Ian Blythe with poems by Adrian Plass, the composers seek to bring healing to a hurting world.

Lay Down The Burden Of Your Heart
Written by Phil Baggaley, Dave Clifton, Ian Blythe

I’ve a message for everyone
Some good news to share
For those who are troubled and living in fear
Lay your head on the shoulder
Of the one who gives you rest.

When the valley is deep
And the road is long
When you can’t go on
Lay down the burden of your heart.
There’s a solid rock
There’s a love so strong
And a light that shines in your darkest hour
Lay down the burden of your heart

If the journey’s impossible
And all is in doubt,
If what little you had has been taken away.
Just remember these promises –
Some words to shame the wise
