Very Good Friday

Here's a song that's always comforted me since I got it years ago, and I think makes a good tribute to Easter. It's by the band, Acappella (wow, creative name. But really good music. http://www.acappella.com if you're interested. Music good!

Lead Me To Rest

I was hurting, all alone
I was searching for a comfort
I could find on my own
With no direction, feeling down
My life was headed for disaster
‘til you turned me around
Nothing ever had been able to ease me
When trying to please me
It only pleased me less
But when I learned about the way that you love me
Had to put your honour above me
Then you gave me rest

Lead me to rest, Sweet Lord
Lead me to rest
From my journey here,
Lead me to rest
The relief I’ve found from the burdens that have weighed me down
Lead me to rest, lead me to rest


What a comfort, what a deal
As I consider what you offered me,
How can it be real?
What could I offer in return
When the value of your blessings
No one could ever weigh
Then you tell me that I’m really forgiven
Got a reason for livin’
And you made it so clear
I’m supported when the devil would charm me
Protected when the evil would harm me
Tell me, how can I fear?

Lead me to rest, Sweet Lord
Lead me to rest
From my journey here,
Lead me to rest
The relief I’ve found from the burdens that have weighed me down
Lead me to rest, lead me to rest

In the world my life was slowly sinking
Never turning into peace at all
Never listening to what you had to say
Now it’s fortunate you’ve changed my thinking
After answering your loving call
You give me rest that nobody can take away

Lead me to rest, Sweet Lord
Lead me to rest
From my journey here,
Lead me to rest
The relief I’ve found from the burdens that have weighed me down
Lead me to rest, lead me to rest

Oh Lord won’t you lead me, lead me to rest…….. (goes gospel)
