lyrics

Are you heavy laden?
What lashes does your body bear?
Are your sorrows plenty?
Come lay em down, lay em down, lay em down

There was a man from nowhere
Who spoke power to the poor
He filled their heart's with fire
So they laid him down, laid him down, laid him down

Oh I heard death had died
So run, Devil run
I say fare thee well to Babylon
Oh I have laid my tent
In the New Jerusalem
With it’s promise of love and life

One day the poor will find plenty
As the rich are left aside
For there is a city descending
Where the low shall be lifted high
And the dead shall raise to life

Oh I heard death had died
So run, Devil run
I say fare thee well to Babylon
Oh I have laid my tent
In the New Jerusalem
With it’s promise of love and life (give us life)
