I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

HE LAY ROSE PETALS UPON MY HEART (A Song of A Healed Heart)

red heart petal
Chorus
He lay rose petals
Upon my heart
Lay them gently
Not far apart
Perfect love
In fragrance dwelt
Left no room
For hopelessness
’Cause with every secret
Of darkness, He dealt
Oh! Jesus, every secret
Of darkness, He felt

All I could see were the dark, dark thorns
That hurt and tore at my Saviour’s heart
But He placed beauty and love in me
He lay rose petals upon my heart

All I could see were the tears He shed
Mingled with crimson in night-time day
Shed for each life ever created
Washing our sins and sorrows away

Chorus
He lay rose petals
Upon my heart
Lay them gently
Not far apart
Perfect love
In fragrance dwelt
Left no room
For hopelessness
’Cause with every secret
Of darkness, He dealt
Oh! Jesus, every secret
Of darkness, He felt

All I could see was my reflection
In eyes crying for His Father’s love
I’m so sorry, my Lord, Redeemer
I lift praises ’cause You’re now above

All I could see was pure emotion
Of Someone who’d always cared for me
What happened, happened, didn’t have to
But if it hadn’t, where would I be?

Bridge
Rose petals upon my broken heart
Have brought a peace and softness
Beautiful shades of heaven’s joy, a
Rose petal garden captivated

Chorus
He lay rose petals
Upon my heart
Lay them gently
Not far apart
Perfect love
In fragrance dwelt
Left no room
For hopelessness
’Cause with every secret
Of darkness, He dealt
Oh! Jesus, every secret
Of darkness, He felt

Release the Joy

Happy Children Jumping
Release the joy
Release the love
Release the memories
From above
Tear down the wall
Repair the breach
Tear down the wall
And into my heart, reach
Take out sadness
Take out grief
Take out oppression
And unbelief
Tear down the wall
Oh! Lord my God
Tear down the wall
And I know You will
Catch me if I fall
Fall when emotions
Come tumbling out
Too much joy
Flooding my soul
But never too much
Never too much
On which to lay my goal
Of loving You
No matter what
May love, peace and joy
Oh! May love, peace and joy
Reflect the golden highlights
Deep down into my heart
Reflect the golden highlights
Of my sweet Father’s love
