​Timothy's Burde

This song is by First Call and appears on the album Sacred Journey (1993).

Bring me my books and my overcoat
Winter's not far down that road
These days grow short
And the truth won't let me go

I'm taking on Timothy's burden
Not ashamed to wear these chains
If I suffer things uncertain
I'm gonna count my loss for gain
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
Oh, yes I am
I'm taking on Timothy's burden

The grip of eternity on my heart
And the voice of a true faithful friend
Is pulling me back to my first love again

I'm taking on Timothy's burden
Set free to run this race
And I bear God's testimony
I'm a prisoner of His grace
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
I've got the truth inside
Though I suffer things uncertain
I'll keep the faith and fight the fight
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
Oh, yes I am
I'm taking on Timothy's burden

I'll keep the faith
And I'll fight the fight
Here's my life

I'm taking on Timothy's burden
Oh, yes I am
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
I'll do the best I can
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
For every man
I'm taking it, I'm taking it
Oh, on, on, oh, yes, I am

Not ashamed to wear these chains
If I suffer things uncertain
I'm gonna count my loss for gain
I'm taking on Timothy's burden
I've got the truth inside
Though I suffer things uncertain
I'll keep the faith and fight the fight

I'm taking it, I'm taking it on
Taking on Timothy's burden
I'm taking it, I'm taking it on
Taking on Timothy's burden
