There Will Be Rest

THERE WILL BE REST

Are You there? Are You listening?
Do You care? Did You plan this?

Oh, great God. Oh, great God.

Savior of the nations come
and fill this world with grace and love
hallelujah, hallelujah
When all the world is torn apart
and victory remains with God

hallelujah, hallelujah
Will there be rest?

You are here. You are listening.
And You've met us with forgiveness
You are here. You are listening
You hurt more and weep with us.

You make all things new. 
God, You make us new. 

Savior of the nations come
and fill this world with grace and love
hallelujah, hallelujah
Though the world is torn apart
the victory remains with God
hallelujah, hallelujah
There will be rest.

Oh, great God. You are so great God.

Savior of the nations come
and fill this world with grace and love
hallelujah, hallelujah
When all that's right shall be restored
and victory remains with God
hallelujah, hallelujah
There will be rest.

"There Will Be Rest" flowed out of experiences in New York City where everyone is seemingly running to try to keep their head above water. This song is meant to be both a song of lament and a song of assurance. As we cry out to God with the hurts of this world, we are reminded that God meets us in that hurt, that He is bringing healing, and in Jesus we have rest both now and not yet.
