Sweet Rest of God

“Rest in the Lord” Psalm 37:7

O how sweet, how very blessed,
My soul, when in my God I rest!
When totally on Him I dare
To lay myself and all my care.

So often do I struggle on
With weary feet and strength all gone;
When on Him I could simply cast
It all, and find release at last.

How precious do I truly find
His strength, His utter peace of mind!
When I put His Promise to the test
And claim His sweet and precious rest!
