"Rest Area" by David Hancock & music by Eugene Montgomery


It had been a quite a day and nothing went right ...
On the road most the day and into the night
There was a sign up ahead Rest Area one mile
So I stopped to check my load and sleep awhile

(chorus)

He said I'll give you rest if you just call on me
He'll carry your burdens set your soul free
Come learn from him for he's gentile and meek
Take on his yoke if it's true rest that you seek


Up early next morning a new way I had found
A joy in my heart now takes me where I'm bound
So if on life's road you've been troubled for a while
There's a sign up ahead Rest Area one mile

(repeat chorus)
