Still, soft quiet spoken voice
That persistently calls my name
And quickens my heart to come
And I come
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You
Embraced in the promise of you
Is rest for the weary soul
Releasing all that is mine
I reach for You
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You
Take all the old and make it new
Everything I give to you
You're the hope that can pull me through
Hallelujah
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of Your grace
And I rest in the shelter of Your love
And I rest in the wonder of You

    General CommentWhen we rest in Him it means that we have the faith in Him. That whatever is going on around us we will rest in what He says He will do for us through his word.

    To me this song helps me see that I don't always have to be on the lookout for myself because he is on the lookout for me.

    Phil 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

    and then with our faith knowing that His word

    Isaiah 55:11 "It shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

    and then we can rest in knowing that His love and grace cover us.

    General CommentSkillet is one of my most favoritestestestest bands ever. Their music goes back a few years to when i got active in this youth group. The youth pastor just moved away though and that really really bums me because he was so cool.... This song is extremely beautiful... Peace and god bless~
