Reflections of the Heart™
(Merry Heart)


Search me O Lord, show me
The true character of my heart.
Is it a reflection of you?
A heart that is set apart?

For in the fragile places
Where my heart just tried to cope.
You took me in and shaped me
And filled my life with hope.

Watching carefully over my life,
My heart began to turn.
Molding me into a heart like yours
From the lessons that I learned.

Holding me through each step,
I now could clearly see,
The reflection of my heart
Had the image of You in me!

A merry heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person's strength. Proverbs 17:22
