i know that i'm not alone, i see the bags/ under everyone's eyes, like a bunch of white flags/
ready to just give up, had just about enough/ why is living so though, why did i choose to drink this cup?/
this love that i'm searching everyday for/ from above, hear me uttering a "save LORD!"/
'cause my body and my spirit and my crowns/ every single thing seems heavy on my brow/
and i sweat it, i want to shed it/ i want to go back in time and make edits/
i carry scars on my heart, but i just let it/ fester into anger, impatience imbedded/
but i read it in the Good Book, it said/ come to me all who are weary and i will give rest/
so i believe that my burdens will leave me/ one day, but 'til then, i'll rest easy

**oh, if i can't see what's in front of me
i'll take Your hand and i'll rest easy

i wonder how many songs use the same progression as this/
i wonder how many times lovers were betrayed with a kiss/
a simple sentiment supersedes sentience and single souls sense the Supernatural's salience/
and daily i'm affected by my weary mind/ many times i forget that love came down forgave my crimes/
i believe that You are my Shepherd tried and true/ when i can't see in front of me i put my trust in You/
during the winter dark and cold and these summer nights/
i'll lay my burdens on the One who took my every plight/
and gave me wings so i could see the sky and take flight/
and perspectives from above show me my worries are trite/
i gaze upon the colors of the deep blue/ the burning warm glow of the sunset's truth/
i let the air fill my lungs, and breathe out, and for a moment rest easy, singing out


if only it were easy to believe that in Your hands lies my security
but still i choose to persevere and try for the Author and Perfector of my life
