What Does Rest Mean?
The days of Earth are lived a-pace
too often we'd confess.
The feet must always move and race
or others won't us bless.

"This life is short and few the days!
We've got a lot to do!
How can you sit there in a gaze
with nothing when you're through?
"

Such diligent souls are these, who strive.
They work so hard to live,
but at the end, they will not thrive
with nothing left to give.

Some days of rest are what we need
to do what must be done,
that souls are whole, nor active bleed,
that man may live as one.

To cease from work shows, that we trust
the Lord to vouchsafe all.
He frees us from our money lust
when to His heart we call.

To sit and listen for the Voice
of He, Who rules fore'er
will rest my person by His Choice.
I roll on Him my care.

To cease from self to active trust,
restores me to the core.
Receiving Grace from He, Who's Just
creates me as before.

My wholeness is not found within.
It's found within the Lord.
I'm whole when He thus frees from sin,
arrested by His Word.
