Jesus My Heart’s Desire
Jesus, Beloved One of my heart,
Yours are the healing hands I long for.
You are the blessing within my soul,
The deepest center of my being.
So I offer my life to Your hands of healing;
As through darkness You walked,
As through darkness You died in,
Grant me to pass through this darkness with grace
As I die to myself to find life in You.
(As I die to this life to find life in You.)
Lift me into Your risen light,
Light of pure love, that has no shadow.
No shadow cast by Your turning away;
You’re ever with me, creating me new.

Jesus, Awe of sacrificial love
Love willing to give up everything
To bring hope to a broken world
to our broken selves
broken for everyone; for me, you
all great beings that lived
before and after him.
As you did not resist your death
may I not resist mine
even as I may sorrow over leaving this life.
Whatever anguish I experience
may it be a sacred expression of
this small agony of mine offered up
for those who suffer so much more
may their trials be lessened.
May I never lose sight of holiness
contained within agony for
suffering brings alive your life story
yours and in some small way
Your story as it moves from agony
light given into a brighter light
than ever before
a healing for the world of tomorrow.
Standing at the foot of your Cross
I forgive. This is my prayer:
Remember me when I call.
Caregivers remind me:
“When you pass through the waters, they shall not overflow you, and
through the rivers, they shall not overcome you. When you pass
through the fire, you shall not be burned, neither shall the fire kindle
against you. For I am the Lord your God and I call you by your name.
You are mine.” (ISA 43:2)
“I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine.”
L’cha dodi. (Song of Songs 6:3)
