I wrote “Lay Down” with the thought of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. He fought desperately in prayer with God and was all alone. His best friends were sleeping. He needed someone to be with him, someone to lay in the dirt with him.
The end of the song takes a turn and is written from our perspective; needing God to lay in the dirt with us; which he did; and does. And that, my friends, is incredibly good news.
