Come Rest In My Presence

by Joye Atkinson
(Gallatin TN USA)

O Lord there is a battle raging inside of me
I'm longing for your perfect peace
to set my spirit free
I've heard your words time and again;
come unto me & rest
I will give you all you need
and guide you through this test.
As I've told you in my word
when you've done all you can,
release your troubled mind to me
and let me help you stand.
I know what you're facing,
just be still and know that I am God
and I've prepared the way for you to go.
I have gone before you
I know the path you trod.
I long for you to trust me
and remember I'm still God.
The devil is a liar
he wants you to think there is no hope,
you're going to drown,
the boat you're in will sink.
When he starts to cloud your mind
on how things may turn out;
when he tells you I've forgotten you
and fills your mind with doubt.
Use the power I've given you
resist him and he'll flee.
Then be still in my presence
as I draw you close to me.
