Verse 1

I've carried a burden
For too long on my own
I wasn't created
To bear it alone
I hear Your invitation
To let it all go
Yeah I see it now
I'm laying it down
And I know that I need You


I run to the Father
I fall into grace
I'm done with the hiding
No reason to wait
My heart needs a surgeon
My soul needs a friend
So I'll run to the Father 
again and again and again and 

Refrain 1

Oo-oh, oo-oh, oo-oh

Verse 2

You saw my condition
Had a plan from the start
Your Son for redemption
The price for my heart
And I don't have a context
For that kind of love
I don't understand
I can't comprehend
All I know is I need You

Refrain 2

Oo-oh, oo-oh, oo-oh
Again and again and again and again
Oo-oh, oo-oh, oo-oh


My heart has been in Your sights
Long before my first breath
Running into Your arms
Is running to life from death
And I feel this rush deep in 
my chest
Your mercy is calling out
Just as I am You pull me in
And I know I need You now

Refrain 2

Oo-oh, oo-oh, oo-oh
Again and again and again and again
Oo-oh, oo-oh, oo-oh


Run To The Father - In the Bible [Verses & Devotional]

We all carry burdens in life, and it can be easy to feel like we have to bear them alone. But the truth is, we don’t have to. In the song “Run To The Father” by Cody Carnes, we are reminded of the invitation to let go of our burdens and run to the Father. 

The Bible tells us in Psalm 55:22, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” We can trust that God will sustain us and never let us be moved. We can also trust that He has a plan for our redemption, as the song says, “Your Son for redemption, the price for my heart.” Jesus paid the ultimate price for our redemption, and we can trust that He will never leave us. 

The song also reminds us that God’s love is beyond our understanding. We can’t comprehend the depths of His love, but we can trust that it is enough. As Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

We can take comfort in the fact that no matter what we are going through, we can always run to the Father. He is always there, ready to take our burdens and give us grace. We can trust that He will never leave us, and that His love is enough. So let us take a moment to lay down our burdens and run to the Father.
