Sweet Rest

Standing on the shores of life Looking to our God Praising His Holy Precious name asking wisdom in life’s fog Oh Savior Lord my Dearest friend Stay close to our side Give me words to tell the world Of the mercy you provide Sing oh sing sweet angels above Let all earth and nature hear Praises to our mighty God and King Wiping away all fear Lord you could raise your hands above This world where we reside And wipe away all demons power Destroy it where it hides We wait on you today dear Lord Guide the path we go Your sweet will our only hope Your plan we pray you’ll show Hold my hand each day my Lord For I fail you on my own Talk to me and use my life Let your love be known Let me go to bed at night Knowing I tried my best Forgive me of my failures Lord With you there is sweet rest
