Musical Encouragement #2 - "My Soul Finds Rest"

Day 2 of our encouraging songs brings us to Psalm 62 - "My Soul Finds Rest". Rest is a key idea throughout scripture. Rest speaks of our dependence on something outside ourselves for strength and refreshment. Our physical existence depends on regular rest (as in we simply cannot function without being unconscious for several hours a day). Psalm 62 is wonderful reminder of how our true rest is found in God. Whether we encounter temptation, trials, the frailty of life, or the certainty of death, we know that our Creator holds us in His sovereign hands. Because of this we can sing "O praise Him, hallelujah, my delight and my reward; everlasting, never failing, my Redeemer, my God."

My Soul Finds Rest (Psalm 62)
by Aaron Keyes

My soul finds rest in God alone, my Rock and my Salvation
A fortress strong against my foes, and I will not be shaken
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse, and lies like arrows pierce me
I'll fix my heart on righteousness, I'll look to Him who hears me.

O praise Him, hallelujah, my delight and my reward
Everlasting, never failing, my Redeemer, my God

Find rest my soul in God alone, amid the world's temptations
When evil seeks to take a hold, I'll cling to my salvation
Though riches come and riches go, don't set your heart upon them
The fields of hope in which I sow are harvested in heaven

I'll set my gaze on God alone and trust in Him completely
With every day pour out my soul, and He will prove His mercy
Though life is but a fleeting breath, a sigh too brief to measure
My King has crushed the curse of death and I am His forever

O praise Him, O praise Him, hallelujah, hallelujah
O praise Him, O praise Him, hallelujah, hallelujah
