Give me rest

“O Lord…
You know me more deeply and fully than I know myself.
You love me with a greater love than I can love myself.
You even offer me more than I can desire…
Take my tired body, my confused mind,
and my restless soul into your arms
and give me rest, simple quiet rest.”

// Henri Nouwen
