Archive for the ‘O Lord My Heart Needs Thee’ Category





Matthew 5:8

 Blessed are the pure in heart:

for they shall see God.





My heart needs Thee, O Lord, my heart needs Thee!  No part of my

being needs Thee like my heart.  All else within me

can be filled with Thy gifts.




 My hunger can be satisfied with daily bread.

My thirst can be allayed by earthly waters.

 My cold can be removed by household fires.




 My weariness can be relieved by outward rest.

 But no outward thing  can make my heart pure.

The calmest day will not calm my passions.

 The fairest scene will not beautify my soul.

 The richest music will not make harmony within.

 The breezes can cleanse the air, but no breeze can cleanse a spirit.

 The world has not provided for my heart.




It has provided for my eye;

it has provided for my ear;

it has provided for my touch;

it has provided for my taste;

it has provided for my sense of beauty,

but it has not provided for my heart.




Lift up your eyes unto the hills!  Make haste to Calvary, “Calvary’s

awful mountain-climb,” and on the way there visit the slopes of

Mount Olivet, where grow the trees of Gethsemane.  Contemplate

there the agony of The Lord Where He already tasted the

tremendous  cup which He drank to the dregs the

next noontide  on

the Cross

There is the the answer to your need.




Provide Thou for my heart, O Lord.  It is the only  unwinged bird in

all of creation give it wings !  O Lord, give it wings!

 Earth has failed to give it wings ;

it’s very power of loving has often drawn it in the mire.

 Be Thou the strength of my heart.




 Be Thou it’s fortress in temptation,

it’s shield in remorse,

it’s covert in the storm,

it’s star in the night,

it’s voice in the solitude.

 Guide it in its gloom;

help it in its heat;

direct it in its doubt;

calm it in its conflict;

fan it in its faintness;

prompt it in its perplexity;

lead it through its labyrinth;

raise it from its ruins.

I cannot rule this heart of mine;

keep it under the shadow of Thine own wings.

~George Matheson



None other Lamb!  None other name!

None other hope in heaven, or earth or sea!

None other hiding – place for sin and shame!

None beside Thee!

My faith burns low; my hope burns low;

Only my soul’s deep need comes out in me

By the deep thunder of its want and woe,

Calls out to Thee.

Lord, Thou art life though I be dead!

Love’s Flame art Thou, however cold I be!

Nor heaven have I, nor place to lay my head,

Nor home, but Thee.

~ C.  Rossetti


Proverbs 4:23

 Keep thy heart with all diligence;

for out of it are the issues of life.







Acts 16:30-31

 ”Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said,

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ,

and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”


Romans 10:8-13

But what saith it?

The word is nigh thee,

even in thy mouth,

and in thy heart:

that is,

the word of faith, which we preach;

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth

the Lord Jesus,

and shalt believe in thine heart

that God hath raised Him from the dead,

thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto


and with the mouth confession is made unto


For the scripture saith,


believeth on Him

shall not be ashamed.

 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:

for the same Lord over


is rich unto


that call upon Him.


For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the Lord




The plan of salvation is simple.

 Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ,

died for your sins and rose again from the dead.

 Ask Him to forgive you of your sins.

 Invite Him into your heart to be the Savior of your soul.






When you’re crying yourself to sleep,

know that Jesus is lending His shoulder to you.

When you’re pushed to the ground,

know that Jesus is holding out His hands to you.

When you feel like dying,

know that Jesus died to let you live.

When you feel like no one loves you,

know that Jesus loves you more than you can imagine.
