    I embrace you when you rest
    Transferring my warmth to you
    Molding my arms around you
    Speaking love into your ear;

    I walk with you through rain
    Holding an umbrella over you
    Wrapping my arms around you
    Keeping you dry from the storms;

    I stand with you in troubled times
    Being your covering God has made
    I face you so you know my love’s true
    As I “hedge-of-protect” you from pain;

    I rest in your embrace
    Safe in the warmth of your love
    Free to expose the many moons
    And seasons of yesterday

    I rest in the love
    God made for me to give to you
    Perfect and complete
    Blindly and nakedly
    Trustingly

    I rest in faith
    Of days to come
    Memories to share
    Life to live
    Till death do us part

    and rest you shall today
    as i carry you into tomorrow
    lifting you high from pain
    holding you close to my heart;

    lay your head on my shoulder
    close your eys so that i can
    walk in faith, confident of us
    experiencing the real of "we";

    now cloes your eyes and listen
    as i whisper joy in your left and
    cpassion in your right to assure
    you that i celebrate you always;

    resting together in the love of God....
