Rest in the Lord, all you His children,
Be not anxious or afraid,
For the things of this world are nothing,
They are here today but gone tomorrow.
You who are burdened,
You who are oppressed,
You who are sick,
You who cry daily at His door,
You who struggle and have no money,
Hold fast your faith and trust in Him.
For He is faithful,
He hears your prayers and gathers your tears.
A time is coming and is near,
When you no longer cry or struggle.
Know this, that the Lord is doing a new thing,
He has marked His children,
And they will know His rest.
Enter into His rest,
Be not anxious or afraid.
He will gather you to Himself,
And you will know His presence,
You will know His love, as high as the heavens from the earth,
Forgiveness, He has removed your transgressions,
As far as the East is from the West.
Salvation and blessing are from the Lord God Almighty,
Nothing you do will make Him love you any more than He does already.
Caste your burdens on Him,
And think of them no more.
For He will wrap you with his cloak of love,
He will be your Father,
He is your protection and provision,
He is your healer and will wipe away all your tears.
Rest in Him, all His children.
