Have you found your resting
I'm so happy that I've found mine.
The day I gave my heart to Jesus
His sweet peace and rest I did find.
It's not in sports or
reading a book
It's not in a bottle of beer.
But the only true rest you'll ever find
Is when you know Jesus is near.
It's not at your therapist's
Not at your mama's knee.
It's the place where you meet Jesus
And say come into my heart, Jesus please.
It's not in laying on
Or even six feet beneath the ground.
Your resting place is in Jesus
If you're really heaven bound.
The only real peace and rest you
Is at the foot of that old rugged cross.
That's where you can rest in Jesus
And know that your soul won't be lost.
I've found my resting
place in Him
You can find yours too.
Just give your heart to Jesus
He'll always see you through.
