Come! I Will Give You Rest
Matthew 11:28, 29


Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from your every care;
Come as you are, oppressed
With weakness and despair.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from the ceaseless strife;
Rest from the fear of death,
Rest from the din of life.
Come! I will rest impart,
Rest after toil and pain,
Rest to each trembling heart
Burdened with sin and shame.
Come ! ye with guilt oppressed,
Great though your burden be;
Come ! I will give you rest,
Rest built on pardon free.
Come! whosoever will,
No one will I deny;
Come! I will give to all
Rest which shall satisfy.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest in contentment sweet;
Come! as a welcome guest,
Rest at your Saviour's feet.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from the weight of woe,
Rest from the weary quest
For happiness below.
Come! I will give you rest,
Where earthly conflicts cease;
Rest on a Saviour's breast,
Rest in the paths of peace.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest in a Father's love,
Rest in the mansions blest,
Rest in your home above.

Psalm 37:3-9  
"Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land,
and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and
he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the
LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring
forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.
Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him..."


A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

Oh to rest in the Lord Jesus Christ! To rest from the burdens
that we bear...to know He can take and lift the load of life's cares
from off our shoulders. To release our worries into His hands.
He loves us, He cares for us and will help us always. Why do
we worry? We shouldn't have fear but rather simply lay our
burdens and cares at our Savior's feet. He has our back. He
knows what is best for us...we rest in this...we are His.
