So All Ye Weary Come And Rest

29 Aug

I find myself among the weary at times.  Anxious and worrying.

I find myself leaning upon myself for strength and wisdom.  Empty and failing.

Only God can handle the weight of my soul.  Only in Him will I find rest.

 

Here are the lyrics to Shane and Shane’s song titled Psalm 62.  Read it.  Meditate on it.  Below is a link to hear it.  Click it.  Listen to it.

He’s the only one
Strong enough to lean
My heaviness against
The weight of all my sin
Falling on a rock
Leaning on a fortress
Oh the wall of God, Jesus
He won’t move

On God I rest
My salvation
My fortress
Shall not be shaken
My mighty rock
And my glorious
I lay my head upon His chest
On God I rest

Oh I am calling out
Oh my soul
Oh my stubborn soul
Won’t you wait on Him
Wait in the quiet
Even in your fear
Oh your God is here, to lean on!
He won’t move

He has spoken
Hear his voice
I have come for the broken
So all ye weary come and rest

Link to hear this song:  Psalm 62 by Shane & Shane

 

 

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him.   He only is my rock and my salvation,  my fortress; I shall not be shaken.  On God rests my salvation and my glory;  my mighty rock, my refuge is God.  Trust in him at all times, O people;  pour out your heart before him;  God is a refuge for us.  Psalm 62:5-8
