He Gives Us Rest
By Marie C Neubauer
When cares of life on me do weigh
That’s when I know that I must pray
That’s when I find a quiet place
And seek my Lord’s amazing grace.
And Jesus’ love then fills my heart
And perfect peace He does impart
My weary soul set free from stress
For Jesus Christ does give me rest!
We forfeit peace and grace divine
Because we do not make the time
To seek a place with Christ apart
Until His peace does fill our heart.
‘Come to me all you that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.’
