Rest My Soul

My head I rest
On that loving breast,
Undone and I
To that shelter fly.
Not groping nor complaining
In my heart,
For covered there
My wanting does depart.

The arrow flies by day
And stalkers haunt
By night to burn my bones
And jeering taunt-
But for all attacks
My shield stays;
No terror frightens
When I at His bosom lay.

Inspired by:

Psalm 131:1-2, Psalm 91:1-6

Welcome to the poetry blog of Charlene Nelson. I view poetry primarily as an expression and means of seeing and savouring Jesus Christ, while inviting others to join me. Some readers may even want to join by writing and submitting their own poetry- and I hope they will! I also intend to use this as a place to share hymns and poetry of times past.
