Weary And Worn I Long For Rest

Weary and worn I long for rest,
Close Thou my eyes in sleep;
O let me lie upon Thy breast,
My rest in Thee complete!

Give me that inner consciousness
Of Thine exceeding peace,
And from all sorrow, grief and pain
Shall come a sweet release.

Then in the morning gird anew
My soul with strength divine;
The word of Thy salvation be
Assurance I am Thine!

Choose Thou the path in life for me,
And lead me by Thy hand;
May every impulse of my soul
Respond to Thy command!
