Rest For The Weary

There is rest for the weary
And there's strength for the weak,
That is what God offers
To those who humbly seek

For it's only in the seeking
That we will surely find
Rest for our weary bodies
And peace for our troubled minds

And it's there in the asking
That we will come to know
God in all His splendour
With His wisdom, we will grow

And it's only in the knocking
That the door will open wide
So we can walk into
What He graciously provides

So maybe for a while
We can rest along the road
And put on Jesus yoke,
For easy is His load.
