Joyous Heart is Thine

“Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way”
Psalm 44:18 (KJV)

For wind cast
To my naked face
Shall push me back
No more.

I have seen
The eyes of life
Awaiting me,
Calling in hearts poor.

And guiding light
Shall urge me on
The path
Of fragrance be.

A loving heart
From You,
O Father,
My commended soul for Thee

I shall never walk
To stones trod
For yesterday
Has passed

But I shall seek
Your shining light
Chasms and pits
Outlasted Thou hast

I love You
And adore with compassion
Those soul’s weak,
Hopeless gray

I lean to Thee
O Lord of mine
To hear you
And see Your way.

So, my heart
Turned back not
My steps
Shant decline

O Loving Spirit
Grasp my hand
Showing love to me
My joyous heart is Thine
