Build a Shelter / Let It Rest

Build a Shelter / Let it Rest is a beautiful prayer song with words by Pamela Grenfell Smith and tune by Conie Borchardt.  Pamela writes, “This is a lyric about giving permission to rest from one’s own inner struggle and pain.”

Here’s a recording.  Note that the lyrics can change for new verses.  Thus, “Build a shelter for your sorrow” can become “Build a shelter for your anger” and so forth.

And here’s the sheet music, with a brief description of the song’s origin.
