Rest then, for you are too weary
…..so many burdens heavy and light.
Rest then, you effort was great
…..you will need your strength for tonight
Rest then, nothing urgent remains
…..sleep now and let your spirit take flight.
Rest then, joy and love resound
…..warmth and light surround
…..friends and family abound
Rest then, smile as we each recall
…..one who so deeply loved us all
…..who held us up lest we should fall.
