Take Me Away

Take Me Away (2022)

January 2, 2022

 

(CHORUS):

Have no fear. God is near.

He said: “I am the same 

yesterday, today, and forever.”

He will be with you ’til the end;

His love will remain.

His yoke is easy, his burden is light.

Come close to Him.

 

(Verse One)

I heard them shout, a thousand voices in the night.

I felt the doubt, I was afraid of the light.

Then, an angel spoke of

the Messiah’s coming day.

The mother and child, and I heard her say.

(Repeat Chorus)

 

(Verse Two)

I heard their pleas amidst the waves and stormy sea.

I felt that this could happen to me.

Then, my Lord spoke

to the winds in a quiet way.

He turned to me and I heard him say.

(Repeat Chorus)

 

(Verse Three)

I heard them talk; the soldiers took him away.

Afraid to walk to the tomb that is empty.

Then, an angel spoke:

“He’s not here, He’s risen today.”

I turned around and I wanted to say. 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

(Coda)

Come to him, all you heavy laden.

Rest in him, when you feel forsaken.

Take me away and sing this song.

(Repeat Chorus)

 

His yoke is easy, his burden is light.

Come close to Him. Come now to Jesus.
