Well, I just need a place to lay my head
Forget the chain that hangs around my neck
These guns are not as heavy as the hearts they defend
And I can't wait to get back home where I can find some rest

    Through putting down our weapons, we will conquer. Through leaning on Him, we will find the strength to stand.

    I got out of prison a few years ago. I went back several times after that. But God brought me to my knees... And his love is so awesome to me his grace so wonderful! My favorite Psalm is Psalm 51. It is perfect with this song.
