Rest – Sonnet

Help me remain in your love, sweet Savior
Life pulls and tugs at my time and vision
I want to live in most pure behavior
Cutting off flesh as in circumcision

I was a slave tied in shackles and chains
Egypt and bondage was all that I knew
Now I am free through the cross and bloodstains
Seated in heavenly places with You.

Resting in Love in your rivers of peace
Knowing identity comes from above
Treasuring all your gifts, grace and increase
Filled with your Spirit, Transcendent Dove

Quiet I rest in Your presence, my King
Pouring my love as a song I will sing
