#AtoZChallenge2020 – Lay Down My Pride

L2020

Here we are at the letter “L” in the 2020 #AtoZChallenge. So, as I continue my musical journey through the alphabet, I am still sharing music that is in my extensive Apple Music collection.

Today I have chose a daily anthem for me during my recovery from alcoholism and cocaine addiction. It so important that I remain humble, open minded, willing to work and listen to others. because of this I choose Jeremy Camp’s Lay Down My Pride!!

That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!

 

Lyrics
Every single word I say
You know it before I speak
You know every thought
The deepest part of me
You draw me closer then I see
Your presence is everything I need
To be the child that you’ve created me to be
I’m ready now to see it your way
I lay down my pride
My desire’s my demise
I’m ready now to see it your way
I’m done, I’m through ignoring you, now it’s true
I’m kneeling at the cross of your grace
I lay down my pride
I was faced with passing time
But I knew the choice was mine
To finally come to you and give you all control
I’ve wandered miles to find my way
And then you revealed this simple faith
I know that you can see the secrets of my soul
The cross, the blood you shed for me
Your back was ripped and bruised
So I can know your love
I kneel, I bow to you my king
