I Will Rest In You

Gsus             Dsus
Lord, I'm in the dark,
      
                Em
Seems to me the line is dead when I come calling.

C/G                      Gsus
No one there, the sky is falling;

             Dsus 
Lord, I need to know.        

           Em
My mind is playing games again,

                                   C/G
You're right where you have always been.


Chorus

                Dsus
Take me back to you, The place that I once knew as a little child;

Em                         C/G                                   
Constantly the eyes of God watched over me.   

           Dsus  
Oh, I want to be in the place that I once knew as a little child,

Em                   C/G
Fall into the bed of faith prepared for me.

               G                    D/F                  Em  -  C/G
I will rest in you,  I will rest in you,  I will rest in you.


Gsus          Dsus 
Tell me I'm a fool,             

                 Em
Tell me that you love me for the fool I am,

       C                        G  
[and*] comfort me like only you can,       

                      Dsus
And tell me there's a place

                      Em    
Where I can feel your breath       

                               C
Like sweet caresses on my face again.


Chorus                   ending 6xs


La la la la   you.    La la la la la.

La la la la la-ah.  (you,)    you la la la la you.   La la la la la-ah. (you.)

2ndChorus
Oh, la la la la la
I will rest in you.
(I) I will rest in you. (in you)
I will rest in you. (sweet caresses)
I will rest in you.
I will rest in you.
(so take me back to you)
I will rest in you (i, I)
I will rest in you.
