looking for nelon song: i'll just lay it down and leave it

chorus
i'll just lay it down and leave it, i'll lay it down and leave it,
i'll carry these burdens no more.
the same hand that lifted the burden of sin will lead me
on through heaven's door.

transcribed this from

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poPqyXQ39ic

but couldn't get a couple of words

I carried the burden of sin for so long
life scarcely had meaning for me
a prisoner to satan and blinded by sin
believing I'd never be free
In my desperation I called on the Lord
at an alter of prayer I prayed through
the chains fell away like the darkness at dawn
and he told me just what I must do

chorus
I'll just lay it down and leave it,
I'll lay it down and leave it,
I'll carry this burden no more.
the same hand that lifted the burden of sin
will lead me on through Heaven's door.

Bowed-(?) down is this body from cares of this life
and troubled so often with pain
and all of the money I've made in this life
could never my good health regain
but it doesn't matter to me any more
for soon now this old house shall fall
my glorified body shall rise from the -?-
at the sound of my dear Savior's call

Ma'am or Sir
I'm not the the person who ask the question but I have looking everywhere for 12yrs to find the words to this song. My mother use to sing it all the time. She went how in 2001. I feel I now have a piece of her back. From the depths of my heart Thank you

What a blessing to hear from you.
My dear Mother has been gone only a few months now.
In the last year of her life, I daily found hymns to share with her.
Our hearts would be full of partial lyrics or melodies and I would
search them out for us.
Now as I search out songs here on this wonderful forum,
I feel less of a loss, knowing that someone else is blessed as she was.
Thank you again for touching my heart with your comment.
And I also want to thank Steve who started this forum.
God's blessings on all of us
Nancy
