He stops me before I even begin –
Instead of letting me spill old defeats,
Sorrows, and all kinds of hidden sins –
Today, He calls me to rest, complete,
Reclaimed by His love, and new within.
Expelling all my weariness, He bequeaths
An oasis of grace and peace again.
Sustained by perfect love, I can meet
Upsetting trials with God’s grace, and then,
Remade in Jesus’ image, I will greet
Eternity with victories He made me win.
