Give it a Rest

Labor builds as it depletes, strength you have to do it.

Much like people, land itself, tires and needs a respite.

Give it time to live again e’re you start re-se-ed-ing.

Fallow earth regenerates, growing what you’re ne-ed-ing.


Since you claim you trust in God, lay it on the li-ne.

Take a rest, kick back, relax, give yourself some ti-me. 

Sins confess and debts forgive, loosen what you hold. 

God provides, you need not fret over what is owed.
