​Take Up Your Mat And Walk

This song is by Deadman and appears on the album Take Up Your Mat And Walk (2010).

The hours are passing slowly
Like the clouds in the late summer sky
The days, they keep on dragging on and on
With no comfort and no reason why

And you feel the time as it passes
Just like Lazarus when he's waiting at the gate
For a little kindness
That some stranger might demonstrate

Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk
Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk

Like a leper at the pool of healing
When he's waiting for his turn to bathe
Like a blind man, a lame man, a sick man
Waiting for a miracle to take shape

And in this life of suffering
Situations are out of our control
It's just when you think that you're beaten down
It takes faith just to make you whole

Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk
Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk

Last night I thought I heard a voice
Asking me do you want to be well?
"How can I with so much pain?"
I said out loud and surprised myself

And then I had an answer
To the grief that I had endured
It was sitting right there beside me
All the while was the means to be cured

Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk
Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk

Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk
Take your mat up
Take your mat
Take your mat and walk
