Thank You For Breaking My Heart

Thank You for breaking my heart
When those I loved too well
Reaped answered prayers and feats I dared
That caused their hearts to swell.

I know I’m nothing now
A memory at best
A pat on the head then left for dead
O come eternal rest!

Thank You for breaking my heart
I’ve broken Yours at times
My lukewarm love drifts up above
When circumstance inclines.

The challenge now to see
The pain laid on Your heart
Each day I see Your love for me
Means we shall never part.

How much Lord, You love me
Far more than I deserve
And how I need Your arms round me
With nothing in reserve.

W.B. Nov ‘14
