With no good works in your hand
Just as you are, my daughter,
I will always make you stand.
Stop your striving, stop your reaching
There is nothing you can do
To increase or improve on
What I have done for you.
You can climb the highest mountain
Or swim the deepest sea
But you’ll never, no, not ever
Change the way I feel for thee.
You can publish books and novels
Or just whisper Me a prayer
You don’t have to earn approval
It’s enough that I am there.
I can see how hard you’re trying
Don’t you know that you are known?
Rest in my love, I’m waiting
I’ll never leave you alone.
Don’t forget that I have bid you
Come to me, I’m your reward
I am all you’ve ever needed
Your Savior, and your Lord.
Thank you, sweet Abba, Father,
I know that it is true
That You love me for who I am
And not for what I do.
Sometimes I just forget
That I’m a child at your feet
And I feel as though accomplishments
Would make me more complete
So I thank you for reminding me
That I already have what’s best
For You alone are my reward
And I can simply rest.
