Closer to the Heart

"And the men who hold high places
must be the ones to start

to mould a new reality

closer to the heart

closer to the heart

Blacksmith and the artist

reflect it in their art

they forge their creativity

closer to the heart

closer to the heart." -Rush

O Sacred Heart of Jesus
pierced by sharpened lance
and drained of precious
water and blood,
now hollow, but for the fire of love
that burns within

I want to crawl inside of you
be held there close and warm,
and bring my tender love within
for I long and yearn for You,
I long and yearn for You

As my love and devotion
for my Saviour and my Lord
heals His sorely broken Heart
my own is healed as well;
we are now united,
our wounds have become one

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I put my trust in you
You hold my heart within Your own
I'm as close as I can be;
in Your Heart I want to stay
never let me go
please, never let me go



  1. That's a very compelling picture of Jesus.

  2. Did you write that Anne? It's lovely!

    'You hold my heart within Your own...'
