Rest and remain

1. Help me, Lord, to rest in you today:
To look for you
In all who come my way;
To be like you
In all I think and feel,
So I can help this broken world
To heal.

2. Help me to remain in you today:
To care, like you,
For all who come my way;
To be like you
In all I say and do,
So I can offer love to all,
Like you.
