“Come Rest”

This afternoon, as I sat in the carpool lane waiting to pick up Rivers, I heard this amazing song.  The lyrics so grabbed my attention that I hurriedly turned up the volume and listened intently.  Beautiful voice, beautiful music and lyrics that touch my heart so deeply…

“Come Rest” by Lindsay McCaul

Busy, busy me, full of self-sufficiency
I have tried so fervently to earn Your love
But any joy that I once found is wearing off, is winding down
And I can hear You in the madness calling out

When You say come, rest -should I be working so hard
When You say love, rest -did You want hands or my heart
‘Cause I have done my best and still I miss the mark
But I remember You said its done
So I come

So convinced that it was right, adding weight to what was light
Seeking value in Your sight, but I was wrong
For all the labor I have done is but a candle to the sun
And I can see that it would never measure up

When You say come, rest -should I be working so hard
When You say love, rest -did You want hands or my heart
‘Cause I have done my best and still I miss the mark
But I remember You said its done
So I…

Come to the water’s edge
I rest in Your promises
That all You ever wanted was me here
And if there’s nothing left that I can do
To earn the love I need from You
Then all that’s left to want is to be near
So I come…when You say come…

When You say come, rest -should I be working so hard
When You say love, rest -did You want hands or my heart
‘Cause I have done my best and still I miss the mark
But I remember You said its done
So I come
