He Giveth more Grace

He gives more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sends more strength when the labors increase:
To added affliction He adds His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed before the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Or Father's full giving is only begun.

Fear not that your need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both you and your load will upbear.

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure:
His power no boundary known unto men:
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He gives and gives and gives again.

2 Corinthians 12:9 -
But he [God] said to me,
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made
perfect in weakness."

Rest, Tired Heart

Rest, tired heart, within those arms eternal,
Like cradled child upon its father's breast;
Oh, lean on Him who giveth to the weary,
After the day is over, blessed rest.

Rest, troubled heart, oppressed by care and sorrow,
Let every fear and vague foreboding cease;
Oh, rest in Him who giveth to the burdened,
After the day is over, blessed peace.

Rest, anxious heart, take no thought for the morrow,
Thou needest not wake, for God His watch doth keep:
Oh, rest in Him who giveth His beloved,
After the day is over, blessed sleep.

Matthew 11:29 -
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest."

Thanks, Rosa.
