05. Rest

In The Making...
by Nevertheless



 

Hey, where have you been?
Where did you go looking for innocence?
Shame is holding you down
It's selling you out
Won't you come back again?
You have found a way
To go on for days
Pretending to live
But you were not okay
With all of that weight
You need to give up

Come now
Just let it go
Let it fall down
Let it all flow like
Water that's rushing in over your soul
'Till there's nothing left
Won't you come to me and rest?

Hey, I know that you're scared
To look in my eyes
When you know that something's wrong
I'll wait as long as it takes
For you to find grace
It's been here all along
You have found a way
To go on for days
Pretending to live
But you were not okay
With all of that weight
You need to give up

Come now
Just let it go
Let it fall down
Let it all flow like
Water that's rushing in over your soul
'Till there's nothing left
Won't you come to me...

As you are
Dirty and broken,
With all your scars
From all the unspoken
All the words
That you wanted to say
But you locked them away inside

Behind the Song:
“Jesus tells us to come to Him when we are weary. He asks us to lay our burdens down because they are too heavy for us. He tells us that He wants to give us true rest. This is a beautiful truth in a crazy fast-paced world where everyone is out for themselves. Jesus wants us to slow down, quit trying to find our own innocence and our own success, and come find rest in Him.” - Joshua Pearson (Nevertheless)
