1/28/2021 – I Will Give You Rest

Matthew 11:28 - Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Though wretched and alone you may now feel,
Though tired and afraid and full of pain,
There is a source of peace that’s more than real
And you can enter in this sweet refrain.
Come here to Jesus, rest within His love,
Your burden disappears as you draw near,
Replaced with pure serenity thereof
Beyond this world of suffering severe.
This calm within your soul His Spirit sets,
And while you’re in His presence all is well.
Tranquility in Christ lends no regrets,
For all eternity can your heart dwell.
            “Here, come to Me,” the Savior says to you,
            “And I will give you rest, your soul renew.”
