Lift Your Heart To Heaven

 When we feel falsely accused, when we feel misused, abused,
we should lift our hurt to Heaven
because He was hurt too, by and for us!
"A new command I give you: Love one another. 
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, 
if you love one another.”
John 13:34-35

Lift your heart of hurt to heaven
Child of He who loves us so
Praise Him for our sins forgiven
Trust for what we do not know

Let go of resentment’s treason
Turn the other cheek and pray
Do not heed revenge’s reason
Ask Jesus to lead the way

Ask Him to help you be meeker
Than the one who hurt you so
Not to be a vengeance-seeker
Or to return blow for blow

Jesus bore false accusation
But He answered not a word
Lift your heart of hurt to Heaven
Let love heal what hatred stirred

Let love suffer long, my precious
Forgiveness heals evil’s ills
Let love counter words malicious
With the love Jesus instills

Lift your heart of hurt to Heaven
All we suffer, so did He
Praise Him for our sins forgiven
And thank Him for Calvary
