Loretta Lynn’s Granddaughter Emmy Russell and Willie Nelson’s Son Lukas Nelson sings ‘Lay Me Down’ in honor of late country star Loretta Lynn. A quiet reminder of our own mortality and presents to us with the hope of beautiful heaven that awaits for all the believers of Christ.
The lyrics of the song ‘Lay Me Down’ is written in reflection and in the realization of how we are never really at peace and free from pain and sorrow until the day we passed on from this mortal world into heaven.
“This old world will turn around. I’ll be at peace when they lay me down. This life isn’t fair, it seems. It’s filled with tears and broken dreams. There are no tears where I am bound, and I’ll be at peace when they lay me down,” writes the author.
The two singers brilliantly captured the spirit of the song with their solemn performance, as does the lovely sound of the fiddle. It is sure to inspire the listeners, the longing for the final reunion with Christ and our loved ones who have already gone ahead of us.
What awaits for us is in heaven is far more than our mind could ever fathom. Believers of Christ, be encouraged that death is the beginning for us and not the end. We will truly begin to live only when we have moved on from this passing world of darkness and sin.
For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NLT)
