Too tired to fold my hands
And throw them at your feet again.
Let me stay here for awhile,
I don't want to go.
There's nowhere else to go away for me.

So take the weight of the world
Off of me for awhile.
Be my peace,
Be my light,
Be to me the hiding place tonight.

You take away everything I have known,
Everything I cannot have,
And all that I want,
All that I need is waiting here.

So take the weight of the world
Off of me for awhile.
Be my peace,
Be my light,
Be to me the hiding place tonight.

Lift me up to where the angels fly,
Lift me high to meet you there again.
It's all I need,
It's all I need.

So take the weight of the world
Off of me for awhile.
Be my peace,
Be my light,
Be to me the hiding place tonight.
Be to me the hiding place tonight.

    General CommentJason wrote this song after 9/11. He played it in concert, and the room was silent. It's so beautiful. Reminds me of the chorus "You are my hiding place."
