Open // Five Minute Friday
Open Your Heart, My Child
by Barbie Swihart
Open your heart, My child.
Let me come inside.
You need not shrink back in fear.
You need not run and hide.
All of the feelings of uncertainty
that you bottle up inside,
Let me replace them with peace,
Let me give you My rest.
I know you feel weak and weary,
I’ve caught every tear you’ve cried.
Open your heart, My child
to My love which heals all wounds.
My door is always open,
You need only to come.
Broken, bruised and battered,
I will receive you every time.
Open your heart, My child,
I long to fill and renew.
I am the key to your heart, My child.
Allow me to rescue you.
