This is a new version of Set It Down, a song based on my experience of sitting with a young woman while she set down some of the pain she was carrying. Her load was heavy, and she taught me the importance of simply being present when offering to “Let me share the burden.”

Lyrics

You shoulder a heavy load
Set it down
The pressure that weighs on you
Set it down
The struggle that rages inside
Set it down
Come rest a while with me

Let me share the burden
Set it down
If it becomes a flood
Set it down
I will ride the waves with you
Set it down
Come rest a while with me

Open, let in light
We will build a bridge, you and I

You shoulder a heavy load
Set it down
The pressure that weighs on you
Set it down

The struggle that rages inside
Set it down
Come rest a while with me
Come rest a while with me
Come rest a while with me
