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?*
