To My Heart

To My Heart

When all of the wisdom of knowledge and words
Cannot make it from my mind to my heart
When it seems to me that I have heard
The full measure that words can impart
When I reflect in the still of the night
On the things that I know to be true
Yet find them powerless to calm or delight
There is only one thing I can do

I cling to You Jesus, as I reach for Your hand
Though you cannot release us, you help us to stand
My faith is as small as a mustard seed
Yet you have declared it is all that I need

When truth is a mirror that causes me pain
As it reveals my faults and regrets
When everything I’ve lived for has been in vain
There's one thing I cannot forget
While all the things in this sad old world
Leave us empty and dry
Above the cloud is a banner unfurled
Your love that will never die

So I cling to you Jesus it is all I can do
While the storm rages I’ll keep clinging to You
Then as I am clinging, dear Jesus impart
Your blessed Word from my mind to my heart

In God is my salvation and my glory;
the rock of my strength, and my refuge is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, ye people.
Pour our your heart before Him.
God is a refuge for us.
Psalms 62:7-8
