The Resting Place

I need to find a resting place

Where troubles will all cease

It seems the daily battles rage

And I can’t find His peace

 

I long to find a resting place

Where healing will be mine

It seems this worn out body

Gets sorer all the time

 

I hope to find a resting place

Where doubt is cast aside

Where faith is all that rules

My heart and soul and mind

 

I’m searching for a resting place

Where I can dwell in peace

I need a calm, assuring voice

To end my worried speech

 

And when the day is over

And my rhyme is almost done

A small voice whispers in my ear

And now I can rejoice

 

Jesus is the resting place

That I am longing for

In His arms your comfort waits

Come and make Him yours
He’ll heal you and deliver you

And peace will flood your soul

And soon you’ll find a quiet rest

That soothes and makes you whole

 

Come into the resting place

Where peace is all for you

Jesus is the resting place

He’s there awaiting you.
