The Best Rest Is Yet to Be

Romans 8:22 “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.”

All the earth awaits His coming.
All that draws life from its breast;
All the fish, the birds, God’s creatures;
All await the coming rest.

When He comes there will be cleansing;
Air and water, soil and stone,
Will be cleansed and all of nature
Will, once more, be on its own.

Snows in winter, rains in summer;
Seed time, harvest, as before.
All the earth will thrive and flourish,
As it was in days of yore.

Do you wonder why there’s groaning?
Why the elements protest?
Man has messed up God’s creation!
All the earth is seeking rest.

Praise the Lord!
