✞ Lyrics:
I come and I lay down my burdens
I know that I do not deserve it
But You took it all with Your purchase
So God I will search for Your purpose
I just want to live for Your service
And I don’t mean just on the surface, no
But I know I don’t do it perfect
So I come to You when I’m hurting

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I’m close to You

Every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I’m close to You
Every thing that I hold to
It levitates when I’m close to You

Close to You
When I’m close to You
Close to You

I’ve counted up the cost I know
I cannot do it on my own
So Father I approach Your throne
Acknowledge You’re my only hope
I give You my anxieties
And all the worry that’s inside of me
In You alone I’m finding peace
In You alone my mind’s at ease

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I’m close to You

Every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I’m close to You
Every thing that I hold to
It levitates when I’m close to You

I have this pain, You alleviate it
I call on Your name, it’s eliminated
And every weight that I hold to
It dissipates when I’m close to You

About The Author

Amen Worldwide Amen Worldwide. We've been redefining the scene since 2012, as the original home of good Christian music - showcasing great music of all genres written by followers of Christ. We spend our time working with artists to help them grow in creativity, as well as spending vast amounts of time searching for the very best in Christian music from signed, independent, and completely unheard of musicians. We love to pioneer new, creative artists to help build their fanbase and see their ministry become a career. We do this through close relationships, and more intentionally through our own co-operative record label The Amen Collective through which we empower artists to reach greater audiences whilst maintaining ownership over their work. Through our Sinai Sessions, we create a community between artists and create exciting new live content of your favorite musicians performing original songs and covers.

  1. The latest release on our own record label, The Amen Collective, and second single from Chris Howland’s forthcoming EP, Close To You is a song about bringing your burdens and anxieties to God. Download/streaming links and lyrics in description, leave your comments below!

  2. Literally was in need of this song. 
    Quick story: I've been in this season of feeling far removed from Christ. I've been seeking and seeking but I feel like I am being left unheard. I've been praying for clarity about the decision that was time sensitive and was discouraged becuase I had no direction from God. Still till today I am praying for peace and clarity over this area.
    I am about to graduate with my Bachelors degree and I still feel anxious about the next steps, i'm afraid of transitions and having to start all over with new people and places.
    I'm not saying this song saved me and solved all of my problems… but I must say it's a seed of hope planted to keep pushing… i'm finna be the persistent widow.
