When love touched my heart, it was wholesome and clean
Reaching the places that no-one had been
Melting the wall that had kept me secure
Protecting emotions I’d suffered before.
When love touched my heart, I was no more condemned
But offered forgiveness ~ given a Friend
To comfort and guide me, to show me the way
To give me assurance that helped me to pray
When Love touched my heart ~ Hope said “Arise
I never will leave you; open your eyes
For I’ll be your everything ~ no need to fear
Just call My Name ~ you’ll find I am near.”
Though dreams had been shattered and life re-arranged
When Love shone its light ~ everything changed
This Love was Jesus ~ my heart was won
Just knowing that, for me, God gave His Son.
My heart then responded and this is my story
Christ ~ my Captain, my Saviour, my glory
I opened the door ~ and Jesus came in.
All-perfect is the love that I found in Him.
