Heal My Broken Heart - Visitor's Poem

by Karen Beaudin
(Mount Vernon, Ohio, USA)

Lord, heal my broken heart I pray.
Let nothing quench my love this day.

Let not the trials you have brought
Consume me and control my thoughts.

Through suffering, my eyes seek you.
Let glory come from skies of blue.

When showers seem to never end,
Remind me, Lord, You are my friend.

When waters all about me rise-
When flames reach up and cause me strife-

When in those times, I stand alone,
My heart yearns heaven, my eternal home.

So as my heart weeps with these tears,
Hold it tenderly; calm my fears.

Your hand in mine, you walk beside
To lead me up this mountainside.
