Heart
THE SWEETEST HEART OF JESUS

Heart of JesusFrom the corner of my church pew,
Sometimes I feel alone,
When I see the happy couples,
In love when I’m alone.

+

I hide behind my lacy veil,
And duck my head to pray,
‘Please, Jesus, be my Valentine
This sweetheart’s special day.’

+

I look up past the altar rails,
And see the Sacred Heart,
His eyes full of affection and
My tears begin to start.

+

His Mother stands there next to him,
Her heart is set afire,
With love for all her children and
I feel a sweet desire.

+

Then warmth invades my senses as
I feel a ‘special’ grace,
From the sweetest Heart of Jesus
Like a kiss upon my face.
