A Caress of the Heart
A caress of the heart Lord, I need every day.
To know that I'm loved each step of the way.
Sometimes my troubles weigh hard on my mind,
And the strength to hold on seems so hard to find.
A caress of the heart Lord, is now what I ask,
To help ease the stress of the unending tasks.
My spirit is troubled, so please hear my call.
And give me the grace to keep giving my all.
A caress of the heart Lord, to help calm my fears.
Let me not be afraid of the days, months or years.
Lord, there are many I know just like me.
Their trials and troubles make it so hard to see.
So now Lord I pray, let them have a part,
Of the love that you give, a caress of the heart.
