I feel this pain, I feel it burn in my heart
I know that this is a test
To make me stronger
You tell me this is my cross
That I bear for the weak
I'll give you all that I am, You're my blood
You're my strength
Now learn, and live through this
and let it burn

Don't let this burden flee from me
till the lesson is complete
Because the pain is teaching me
Who I need to be

The clarity is getting stronger
My heart is teaching me
what my eyes can't see
You wrote your name on my heart
I am the sparrow
I bear this pain in your name
It makes me stronger
Now learn and live through this
And let it burn

Don't let this burden flee from me
till the lesson is complete
Because the pain is teaching me
Who I need to be

Don't let this burden flee from me
till the lesson is complete
Because the pain is teaching me
Who I need to be
About the man I want to be
For all the ones who count on me
Because the pain is teaching me
Who I need to be

    General Commentpretty much self explains itself. sometimes when following God, we are put through tests that are like burdens. and the song is saying " dont let this burden flee from me. till the lesson is complete" God is trying to teach us something, and if we stick with Him through it, it will make us better and stronger once its over. Awesome song. thats just make take on it.

    General Commentthe intro is :

    People Say God is Dead
    But how can they think that
    If i show them the Devil

    And then the middle:

    Girl : Why did the demons not leave me tonight
    Man : You Can come with me in peace, free of your bodily form, or you can choose to continue this
    : The Choice is Yours
    Girl : I choose to stay :sobs:

    This song does include bits which i can agree seem to be from the exorcism of Emily Rose, however there is still the core belief.

    The true meaning is much like the 1st poster said. As Christians we will be tested by sin and ridiculed by others as we carry the burden of our faith in God, however even though the burden may be heavy at times we should continue to persevere no matter what. as we deal with drawbacks to being christian we will learn what it truly means to follow our God.

    Shows a Faith & Works needed for Heaven viewpoint. staying firm in our beliefs can be a hard but great display of work, apposed to saying you believe but then shed and shy away from your faith when challenged.
