Rest Easy

i know that i'm not alone, i see the bags
under everyone's eyes, like a bunch of white flags
ready to just give up, had just about enough
why is living so though, why did i choose to drink this cup?
this love that i'm searching everyday for
from above, hear me uttering a \"save LORD!\"
'cause my body and my spirit and my crowns
every single thing seems heavy on my brow
and i sweat it, i want to shed it
i want to go back in time and make edits
i carry scars on my heart, but i just let it
fester into anger, impatience imbedded
but i read it in the Good Book, it said
come to me all who are weary and i will give rest
so i believe that my burdens will leave me
one day, but 'til then, i'll rest easy
oh, if i can't see what's in front of me
i'll take Your hand and i'll rest easy
i wonder how many songs use the same progression as this
i wonder how many times lovers were betrayed with a kiss
a simple sentiment supersedes sentience
and single souls sense the Supernatural's salience
and daily i'm affected by my weary mind
many times i forget that love came down forgave my crimes
i believe that You are my Shepherd tried and true/
when i can't see in front of me i put my trust in You/
during the winter dark and cold and these summer nights
i'll lay my burdens on the One who took my every plight
and gave me wings so i could see the sky and take flight
and perspectives from above show me my worries are trite
i gaze upon the colors of the deep blue
the burning warm glow of the sunset's truth/
i let the air fill my lungs, and breathe out,
and for a moment rest easy, singing out
if only it were easy to believe
that in Your hands lies my security
but still i choose to persevere and try
for the Author and Perfector of my life
oh, if i can't see
what's in front of me
i'll take Your hand and i'll rest easy
oh, if i can't see
what's in front of me
i'll take Your hand and i'll rest easy
