Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Jesus lay down beside me
Lay down and rest your troubled mind
Jesus lay down beside me
Lay down your worries all behind
Well you wept a million tears Lord
For the truth has fallen on deaf ears Lord
But don't despair
I am prepared
Are you in need

[Verse 2]
Jesus lay down beside me
Down at the dark end of the day
Jesus lay down beside me
Let all your sorrows fall away
When the night has grown so dark Lord
And the flowers of your love
Lord sweet Lord
Refuse to see
In a world full of greed
Are you in need
Are you

[Verse 3]
When the light has grown so dark my Lord
And the flowers, the flowers of your love Lord
Refuse to grow
Lord let me know
(Are you in need)
Are you in need
(Are you in need)
Are you in need
Lord let me know
Are you in need
(Are you in need)
Oh are you in need, are you in need
Are you in need Oh Lord
(Are you in need)
Don't despair
(Are you in need)
(Are you in need)
Jesus
Oh
(Are you in need)
(Are you in need)
Are you in need
(Are you in need)
Are you in need
Are you in need
(Are you in need)
Are you
Are you in need
