You are my heartbeat

 

Lord,
You are my heartbeat,
The pulsing of my blood;
The breath that keeps my mind alive,
My readiness to love. 

Lord,
You are my Maker,  
The Friend I don’t deserve;
My Saviour, and my lifelong goal, 
My readiness to serve.

Lord,
You are my Father, 
The One who will forgive;
My life-force, and my heart’s desire,
My readiness to live.
