Heart of Jesus, deepest desire of the human heart, have mercy on us ...
Some say they long for shining gold,
some want beauty's kiss,
health is precious to the old,
and drugs provide deceptive bliss.
All the gifts that life can offer
and our hearts are empty still.
Earth has nothing it can proffer,
no magic wand, no miracle pill.
For our hearts are ever breaking
without the balm that He provides.
Only love can ease the aching,
perfect love where Christ abides.
