When you haven't a breath left in you
to battle the long day ahead,
the Lord waits with arms wide open
and a place to lay down your head.
When you're smothered with work and worry,
overwhelmed by the tasks at hand,
the Lord awaits your invitation.
At your call, He comes where you stand.
When the pressures of life are crushing
and your soul cries out for grace,
He lifts the weight of your earthbound woes
and offers you breathing space.
