Rest

tired-lost-sportman-1251217-639x547

Our lives are spent striving for wind-full gain
We chase after vanity
Our breathing is labored, our muscles strain
To no longer be empty

And you say

Come unto Me for rest
Come lay down at My feet
Come unto Me for rest, O soul,
Lie down and sleep in peace.

We shout and we dance around in the hope
That our own pride may be fed
We long to be noticed, long to be known
We long to be loved instead

And you say

Come unto Me for rest
Come lay down at My feet
Come unto Me for rest, O soul,
Lie down and sleep in peace.
