Lord Let Me Walk

Lord Let Me Walk
(By Jack Miffleton)

Lord let me walk that lonely road with you,
Under the weight of the wood.
Lord let me walk that last mile in your shoes,
Under the weight of the wood.

*Refrain:
Freedom can be found, laden down,
Under the weight of the wood.

Lord let me cool your lips baked like clay,
Under the weight of the wood.
Dried up like rain on a hot and dusty day,
Under the weight of the wood.*

They gave you gall and sour wine for your food,
Under the weight of the wood.
Father forgive them; they don’t know what they do,
Under the weight of the wood.*

Lord, must the journey always end this way,
Under the weight of the wood?
How many times have we nailed you up today,
Under the weight of the wood?*

      I love this song too. I always know Easter is near when I hear this song. Thanks for your comment.

        I haven’t finished singing this hymn but I’m in tears already! 🙂 God bless u for putting this up here! This hymn melts me down 🙁 In no other religion did somebody shed His blood and gave His own life to save His people. In no other religion have we witnessed such love!!! Love Jesus so much!!!

      I couldn’t find it recorded on iTunes, but I did find it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fE1ikyy2gU

      You can search on YouTube for “Under the Weight of the Wood” or “Lord Let Me Walk” or “Lord Let Me Walk That Lonely Road With You” to find other recordings of it. It’s one of my favorite Lenten songs too.
