Ponder Jesus’ tender invitation in
Matthew 11, and
rest in Him.
Our Father God, unselfish King,
How fierce the burning love You bring!
We need Your truth, despite its sting,
So through our fears, we come, we come.
We cling to anxious self and pride.
You help us lay each one aside.
You leave our need no place to hide.
O patient God, we come, we come.
From constant, crushing self-concern,
From worthiness we’ve tried to earn
In simple, humble faith we turn
To rest in You, O God. We come.
Fulfill the hunger now begun:
To know You fully in Your Son.
To live and love and breathe as one,
O Father God, we come, we come.
