Day Seven -- Rest

And on the 7th day God rested ..
This was probably the easiest symbolism of all to work out -- in Him we find rest.

Under the shadow of Your wings
Here I shall rest entire;
Loved into being by Yourself,
Child of Your own desire.

Here I am wanted. Here I come
Home to Your lovely grace;
Still You receive me, take me in,
Welcome shines from Your face.

You are my shelter. Outside You
Fierce tempests rage and tear;
But I may curl against Your breast,
There is no shaking there.

Here is my peace that cannot pass,
Here my security:
In the still centre of the world,
Where You have hold of me
