The Mind of the Heart…..




Beating faithfully
Pumping fluid of life
The heart continues
Even in pain and strife

Yet more than muscle
More than mechanics therein
The heart has a mind
Clinging to either life or sin

For a man indeed is
As he thinketh in his heart
It is from the heart-center
Growth of fruit does start

Thus we feel heart pain
When bad news we learn
Or feel our hearts lifted
When loved ones return

It is Christ’s heart that aches
When sinners reject His love
For His heart pours blessings
From His throne above

The life-blood of His heart
Is the life-force of salvation
It purifies and restores
And strengthens in temptation

Guard carefully, then, your heart
Let it be of flesh, not stone
Sensitive to God’s Word
Imprinted with Truth alone

For the Law of the LORD
Is written upon His child’s heart
That he may live victoriously
And from God never part

So we protect our hearts
And lift them to the Most High
We embrace the love of Christ
Never our hearts to go awry

And we sing of God’s love
We rejoice in His glory
Christ’s heart bled for us
Salvation is His Story

Beating so faithfully then
Let the rhythm of our hearts be one
With the symphony of our King
Yes, music of Eternity has begun
