Refreshing Rest

by Hazel Straub

When I am tired and weary, I find my rest in you my LORD
Unloading my stress, distress, troubles no longer stored
Washed in the blood of the Lamb, at peace with joy, blessed
Tranquil, at ease and refreshed, resting on your breast

Recovering my purpose in your love, mercy and grace
Your presence brings lightness, as I go at your pace
Ungodly expectations and measuring sticks destroyed
Transformed by true loving acceptance, I’m overjoyed
