A Resting Place

by Stephanie Sawyer

In the dark of the night
  He turned my soul.

Where agony had once prevailed
He shed all things
  So that I could depend
    On Nothing ---
      Nothing ---
                       But Him,
    My Rock, My Redeemer,
      The Light of my life.

Jesus became the whole focus of my being,
  my survival.
    Jesus became my all.

I am filled with joy.
I am filled with peace.
The Lord''s light has shed me provision in countless ways
  Beyond my understanding ---
  And always ---
             It is exact ---
                    as only He can be.

I bless the Lord,
          My Savior,
                        My Rock;
          On Him alone, my soul rests in safety.
