"Rest" as written by and Jason/pearson Walker....
Hey where have you been?
Where did you go? Looking for innocence?
Shame is holding you down, selling you out, won't you come back again?

'Cause you've found a way to go on for days, pretending to live
But you are not ok, 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
The water that's rushing in over your soul 'til 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

'Cause you've found a way to go on for days, pretending to live
But you are not ok, 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
The water that's rushing in over your soul 'til there's nothing left
Won't you come to me as you are

Dirty and broken with all of the scars, from all the unspoken
With all the words that you wanted to say but you locked them away inside

Come now just let it go, let it fall down, let it all flow like
The water that's rushing in over your soul 'til there's nothing left
Come now just let it go, let it fall down, let it all flow like
The water that's rushing in over your soul 'til there's nothing left
Won't you come to me and rest?

    Song MeaningThis song is beautiful, I love it!

    Look at the lyrics as if God is saying them, for example, throughout the whole song he is saying..

    "Hey, it's me God, I know you've been through a lot. Why are you hiding? Why are you looking for another place or thing to comfort you? I love you, and I can satisfy your needs. Just let it all go, I forgive you. It doesn't matter what you've done, or where you've been, I love you anyway. My arms are wide open for you. I'll wait for you as long as it takes, I have grace, and I will pour it upon you, and renew your soul. Won't you just come to me and rest?"

    That should make the song pretty easy to understand. :) Once again, it's so beautiful! It shows God's true mercy and love. Nevertheless did a great job with writing this song!
