The Winsome Heart Of Love


The dream began, I saw the Lord,
Blessed by the Holy Ghost,
His winsome heart of love assured,
Christ flew from coast to coast...
To rescue Man from sin's control,
Full pardon to bestow,
That's why He prayed for each lost soul,
That Gospel faith might grow...

His outstretched hands were bathed in light,
With miracles in wait,
To overcome the darkest night
That brought both doubt and hate...
And timed exactly for each cause
That set each captive free,
To open fast their prison doors,
His love, the only key...

And in His wake, Man's praises rose,
Ascending to the sky,
For faith brings Winter to a close,
Like March when it's marched by...
When Christ becomes the Sinner's friend
Forever and a day,
That's when the Bible can present
More than its words could say...

Because the Father has prepared
A feast around His Throne,
The Saviour's gathered all who cared,
No more to weep or groan...
For Heaven waits the faithful child,
The woman and the man
Who trust what Christ has reconciled
Through God's triumphant plan...

His winsome heart of love once died
That God could then forgive!
Christ crucified will stay and guide
The life you're meant to live...
So if the Saviour visits you
And knocks upon your door,
Your heart will know and tell you true,
To welcome Him for sure...

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
