"Lay Down My Pride" as written by John Bettis and Steve Porcaro....
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

    General CommentThis song helped me through a tough time. It's kinda obvious what it's about, so I won't even bother.

    Jeremy Camp rocks, and his songs need more comments.

    General CommentIf you're struggling with Him, you're gonna realize you have to do it God's way sooner or later. It'll either be after a long time of running away from him, or sooner. Lay down your pride. You are not your own. You are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for you to do. Lay down my pride.
