Cascading o'er my heart strings,
The love I feel from You,
And pooled in Your faithfulness
Whatever I go through.
Securely held within Your arms
I nothing lack or fear,
I will not drown in waters deep
With Your words in my ear.
Today, tomorrow, in Your hands,
In You I safely rest,
For You know all there is to know
And only want my best.
By angel's wings I'm guarded,
Though rapids run so deep,
I focus on Your promises
And lay me down to sleep.
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and over burdened, and I will cause you to rest--I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls." Matthew 11:28 (Amplified Bible)
"Lord you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure." Psalm 16:5-9 (New International Version)
