Lay Dem Down

Lay dem down.

Lay dem seeds down.

Don go diggin dem up.

Lay dem down.

Lay dem seeds down.

Let God do da growin now.

 

Lay dem down.

Lay dem sins down.

Don go pickin’ dem up.

Lay dem down.

Lay dem sins down.

Let God wash dem away now.

 

Lay dem down.

Lay dem fears down.

Don go pickin’ dem up.

Lay dem down.

Lay dem fears down.

Let God carra you thru.

 

(I was thinking about traditional field songs last night and this one came to me.  Try to read it aloud in a working rhythm  Let me know what you think!
