Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
Psalm 116:7 KJV
When all the work and play of day is done,
The dishes washed, the children laid in bed,
Reflect upon the struggles and the fun,
The things you didn’t do or done instead,
Return unto your rest, my weary soul:
The Lord has dealt so bountifully with you.
His grace has carried you from role to role,
His love a shining light the whole day through.
Despite your tribulation He’s been here
Within the very center of your heart.
You’ll never be alone, no need to fear;
Relax, my soul: the Savior won’t depart.
Tomorrow comes too soon; for now just rest.
The stars are bright tonight and you are blessed.
