REST FOR A WEARY TRAVELER

As I travel on my journey
Through a world so stained with sin
I find a lot of green pastures
Where I can rest within

I rest in the field of redemption
Jesus meets me there
Never failing to appear
He is always near

I rest a lot in the field of prayer
So very green is that grass
Except the part where I bend my knees
Itís brown and crumpled over
Each day I pray new seeds

There in the field of prayer
I see a blood stained hill
Where Jesus covers me with love
And I plan to do his will

In that field of worship
Gods rest is a peaceful stream
The flowers of God grow tall
The former and latter rains
fall and fall and fall

Iím just a new born baby lamb
Eating my way home
The Good Shepard leads and guides me
As through this world I roam

Everyday Iím eating
as I journey on my way
In all my green pastures
I find rest for a weary soul
Until I hit the next valley
As on and upward I go

Some beautiful morning
The trump Of God shall sound
Those who are asleep in Jesus
Will come up out of that ground

Those that remain will be changed
In the twinkling of an eye
Iíll find the greenest pasture ever
Heaven will open her door
Safe in the arms of my Savior
Resting forever more
