If You Could See Inside My Heart

If you could see inside my heart
What a wonder you would see.
It’s not very pretty inside there
But it keeps perfect time by the Master for free.

If you could see inside my heart
You could feel the love I have in that small little place.
All I want to do right now
Is to give you a tiny little taste.

If you could see inside my heart
You would see the hurt and pain
I put it all in the back so it can’t come out.
I colored it all black over and over again.

If you could see inside my heart.
You would find one part is not very full.
I colored it blue because I feel lonely sometimes
Of course it could quickly change to a sapphire-like jewel.

If you could see inside my heart
You would find one part abundantly full of love.
God placed it there with His own hands
It surely came from His home above.

So when you come to me
Be gentle and tenderly touch my heart to help it mend.
For God in His great wisdom said, “Greater love hath no man
But that he lay down his life for a friend!”
