Return unto thy rest, O my soul. - Psalms 116:7

There is no rest for the Christian but at the feet of Jesus; when we live near to Him, and exercise our faith upon Him, we are at rest. Conscience is silent, or commends us. The law has nothing to say against us. The world has but little influence over us.
Satan is weak, and cannot overcome us.

But if we wander, we become weak, we lose our courage; and darkness, perplexity, and trouble frequently fill our minds. But we MAY return, for Jesus is still inviting us; we MUST return, or we cannot enjoy peace; let us therefore return unto our rest this morning.

O Jesus! we come to Thee! Receive Thy wandering sheep, restore unto us the joy of Thy salvation, and let us find rest at Thy cross. Oh, to rest on Thy faithful word, with Thy faithful people! To rest from slavish fear, worldly care, and distressing anxiety; to rest in Thy boundless love, satisfied with the dispensations of Thy special providence.

Return, return, my soul from all thy wanderings, and find thy rest in Jesus, thy faithful Friend and Saviour. Sweet assurance: "He will receive us graciously."

O Jesus, be my rest, and the solace of my soul this day!

Indulge me, Lord, in that repose,
Which only he who loves Thee knows;
Lodged in Thy arms I fear no more
The tempest's howl, the billow's roar:
Those storms must shake th' Almighty's seat,
Which violate the saint's retreat.
