rest

O God, we turn to Thee as little children, wearied with the day, turn home.

We are wearied with the conflict of life, its burdens, its sore defeats, its perplexities, and disappointment,
and sometimes we grow weary with what we call its pleasures and its successes.

We turn to Thee for rest.  

Open Thine arms, we pray, that we may rest in Thee;
O take us to Thy heart! Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Amen.

-Ralph Cushman, Pocket Prayer Book, 1941
