Overcoming trauma and suffering is no easy task. For some, it can take a lifetime. But when you choose to walk down a road less traveled towards recovery, and then reach out for some help, you are at your most vulnerable. Many won’t understand the road you are on. Though intentions may be sincere, the hurt caused by ignorance can run deep.

This song is about such a journey.


Stone of Grief
Chris Taylor

You took on the pain
You took on sadness
You took on the long road back

You took on the past
You took on despair
You took on the hardest path

You took on the cost
You took on the task
You took on the drudgery

You took on the ache
You took on the hurt
And held on to integrity


Even when you said your peace
The stones of ignorance were tossed
So you, took on their pain
Took on their loss
And you sunk beneath your stone of grief


A step of faith
Through a broken heart
You chose loves healing ways

And with that step
You looked to me
And here I am by your side

So take on the pain
Take on the sadness
I’m here with you, on your long road back


So now that you’ve said your peace
If those stones of ignorance get tossed
We’ll rise above the pain rise above the loss
And we’ll toss away that stone of grief

We’ll toss away that stone of grief.
