OH LORD, LET ME REST

By Keith Howard
(Opening)

Oh Lord please let me rest

Yes, Lord please give me respite

For I swear I’ve fought so hard Lord

Fought with all my might

I am tortured by the day

And haunted by the night



It’s so hard to sail your ship

Upon a sea of fools

And in the wanting hand

Sometimes the Jester rules

But the vagaries of life

So often turn out cruel

For the wheels of enterprise

We’re just the hapless mules



(Chorus)

I’ve tried hard Lord

Oh, how I’ve tried

And I’ve cried Lord

Oh, how I’ve cried

Let me rest Lord

Please Let me rest

In this life Lord

I’ve given them my best



And the scales of equality

Are weighted to one side

Because quantity not quality

Will conquer and divide

They will look you in the eye

Tell you their cause is just

Turn away from their gaze

There’s no one here to trust



(Chorus)

I’ve tried hard Lord

Oh, how I’ve tried

And I’ve cried Lord

Oh, how I’ve cried

Let me rest Lord

Please Let me rest

In this life Lord

I’ve given them my best



Yes, in this life Lord

I’ve given them my best
