Morning music: “Glory, Glory, When I Lay My Burden Down”


At first you might think you are listening to another version of "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" and it is very similar, but "Glory, Glory, When I Lay My Burden Down" is not about death, as is "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," but about laying down our burdens with the Lord, who tells us who are burdened and heavy laden to lay our cares and worries down before Him. This song is a happy song, about a feeling of  peace  when a burden is lifted from our shoulders. This version, by Patrinell Wright and Gloria Smith, also happens to be on the soundtrack of "Because of Winn-Dixie."

"Glory, Glory" (also known as "When I Lay My Burden Down," "Since I Laid My Burden Down," "Glory, Glory, Hallelujah" and other titles) is an American spiritual song, which has been recorded by many artists in a variety of genres, including folk, country, blues, rock and gospel. It is typically very melodically similar to another popular gospel song, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." (Wikipedia)
