Story behind the song
Do you ever have those times when there are many things going on in the world that concern you whether on a global, national, local or familial scale - or all of the above? Sometimes this results in a vague sense of unease and burden on our souls - like a cloud hanging over our heads we can't seem to shake off. I was feeling that way one day as I drove home from grocery shopping and decided to just sing my thoughts out loud. But not knowing exactly what to say, I just spoke to Jesus, "Why do I feel burdened? What weighs on my soul?" There are so many reasons to praise, but sometimes in order to get there, you first need to re-release your burdens at the feet of our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and... Prince of Peace.
Lyrics
Why do I feel burdened? Why downcast, my soul When my faith is certain And my hope is sure? Daily cares and disappointment Drive me to my knees Why do I feel burdened Prince of Peace? When I feel forgotten When I walk alone Bear my every burden Turn me to your throne Daily cares and disappointment Drive me to my knees Why do I feel burdened Prince of Peace? Oh take away fear And wrap me in comfort Turn sorrow to joy in my soul You feel every pain You know why my hearts hurts In suffering Your Spirit consoles When the world is shaken Stay my solid ground When the dark awakens To Your Truth I'm bound Daily cares and disappointment Drive me to my knees Why do I feel burdened Prince of Peace? Oh, hear my hearts cry My refuge, my shelter Reach down through the darkening clouds The shadows of earth You thwart and You conquer Your faithful love saves and surrounds When my race is finished And I close my eyes To the joys of Heaven Wake me, make me rise Daily cares and disappointment Pale in place of these Hold me now in wholeness Prince of Peace Gone are fear and isolation God is all in all Sovereign sympathizer Savior, Balm
