I will rest in you

I just wanted to share the lyrics from a song that has really helped me at many times throughout my life. I love all of Mindy Gledhill's music, but this song in particular has special meaning to me. It is called "I will rest in you." Listen to it somehow, it is wonderful. Whenever I have had a bad day, or am just feeling down for whatever reason I can listen to this song and everything seems to fade away. The music calms me and her words become my words, my plea for help to my Heavenly Father. I am enveloped in the calm and peace of the spirit and truly begin to rest in Him.

Lord, I’m in the dark
seems to me the light is dead while I come crawling
no one there, the sky is falling
Lord, I need to know
my mind is playing games again; you’re right where you have always been

take me back to you
the place that I once knew
as a little child
constantly the eyes of God watched over me
oh, I want to be, in the place that I once knew
as a little child
fall into the bed of faith prepared for me
I will rest in you
I will rest in you
I will rest in you

tell me I’m a fool
tell me that you love me for the fool I am
and comfort me like only you can
tell me there’s a place
where I can feel your breath like sweet caresses on my face again

take me back to you
the place that I once knew
as a little child
constantly the eyes of God watched over me
oh, I want to be, in the place that I once knew
as a little child
fall into the bed of faith prepared for me
I will rest in you
I will rest in you
I will rest in you, ah

I will rest in you
I will rest in you
I will rest in you

I will rest in you

I will rest in you
I will rest in you
I will rest in you

I love this song! One of my friends here in Chile sang it at our ward talent show, and it now holds a special place in my heart too!
