Rest Me in Thy Love

Rest me in thy love Lord
Like a fallen bird with a tattered wing
Lay me in the palm of thy hands
Smooth my ruffled feathers
And heal my broken wing
Set me free to scale the heights
And hear the songs I sing

Rest me in thy love Lord
Like John upon thy breast, snuggle me close
That thou who searches and knows hearts
Can hear silent murmurs
Heavy sighs, misbeats
And the quick palpitations
Of my fragile heart strings

Rest me in thy love Lord
Lay my weary head on the soft cushion
Of thy mercy and compassion
Smooth my disgruntled brow
And hush me in thy presence
Revive me by thy Spirit
To work for thee my king
