Only A Loving Heart
By Lance Landall

I know itís hard, Iíve suffered too, had my share of hurt and pain,
But still, letís cling to Jesus, who, one day on earth will reign.
Then the suffering we share, weíll no longer have to bear,
For Jesus, will bring an end, to heartache, experienced here.

Yes, I sympathize and care, know how life can be unfair,
And know itís even harder, when one has no friend to care.
Sometimes it feels so lonely, midst our problems or our pain,
And we can feel abandoned, feel our strength begin to wane.

Despite it all, letís praise the Lord, for problems that weíve had,
The pain weíve suffered also, and those times when weíve felt sad.
For now, anotherís suffering, we can better understand,
Much more caringly respond, appropriately, give a hand.

Like the rainbow midst the rain, so thereís hope amidst the pain,
For the cross that bore our Saviour, has brought grace for all to claim.
Thus, those whoíve Christ accepted, know that soon all pain will end,
For Christ is the great healer, who broken heartís, and lives, will mend.

Then throughout eternity, joy and happiness weíll share,
Living in a Paradise, free of misery and despair.
No longer will the shadows of a fallen world surround,
For the Son of light and beauty, all this darkness, will have bound.

But meantime, hurt weíll suffer, for on earth we still remain,
So let us help each other, through the misery and pain.
Letís reach out with compassion, help others, their burdens bear,
Letís show more love and kindness, help ease heartache, pain and fear.

Soon our Saviour will return, and His home in Heaven share,
But He will only share it, with the ones who love and care.
For the God of love who saves, knows His love, our hearts must fill,
As only a loving heart, responds to others, and fulfills His will.
