Rest? – Psalm 61:2-5

Rest? – Psalm 61:2-5

Are we growing tired
Or struggling with the weight
Are our souls at a low
So deep we just can’t rise
Still trying in our own strength
Pushing on to no ends
Yet still He calls out to us
For under His wings
He says we’ll find our rest

Psalm 61:2-5

The Circle (Job 11:18)

The Circle (Job 11:18)

I’ve sat within the circle
Surrounded by only fear
I felt the circle close in
Until the fear choked my lungs

Still the Lord came to my side
And tore the walls of fear down
In His presence I could breathe again
My heart felt so secure

Now I’m at the centre of hope
All around me is His love
And here I rest in the midst of it all
Safe here beneath His wings

Job 11:18

Travelled So Far (Proverbs 30:5)

Travelled So Far (Proverbs 30:5)

Days become harder
Our thoughts become clouded
The stresses of life
Lay a heavy burden
Upon our fragile souls
Our feet so tired
We’ve travelled so far
Now it feels we can’t go on
Yet there is a place
Our tired feet can call home
The Father’s arms
Our refuge and our shield
A place to find peace
Beside the glory of the Son
A place for tired hearts
To finally feel new

Proverbs 30:5

The Night

The Night (Exodus 33:14)

When I was afraid
Those nights I was alone
A forgotten man
Forgotten by myself
I called out
Whispered Your name
In the dead of the night
My prayer You heard
My question
My request
So tired and weary
Little sleep over time
I needed You this night
And You answered my call
Calmed a restless heart
And You whispered to me
My presence is with you
And I give you rest

Exodus 33:14

Rest And Peace

Rest And Peace (Matthew 11:28)

Are we so tired?
Broken from the toil
Worn and weary
From the fight each day
Yet we hear His voice
It calls to us
To come to Him
He pleads for us
To turn to Him

He is our peace
He is our rest

So let us go to Him
And lay down our burdens
And rest in the peace He gives

Matthew 11:28

In Your Peace

In Your Peace (Psalm 4:8)

From the centre of the storm
You welcomed me to Your shelter
When chaos reigned
In the light of Your face
It faded from view
From heaven Your peace flowed
And settled over me
In the face of it all
I slept in Your peace
In the house of Your love
Where I rest in Your safety

(Part 2 of 7)

Psalm 4:8

Psalm 4:8

You Came

You Came (Psalm 3:5)

When I called to You
As I lied there
Under deepest shadows
With an empty heart
You answered
You came

When I couldn’t find sleep
As the nights dragged on
And morning came too soon
I called out for peace
You answered
You came

Now I lie down
Now I sleep in perfect peace
And when the new sun rises
I wake anew because
You answered
You came
