Most Dear

©2015 Mollie Pearce McKibbon

If you raise your eyes to heaven,

And your heart is full of woe,

Then you need to speak to Jesus;

Let your heartbreak overflow.

              ****

When you turn your eyes to Jesus

And confide in him your pain,

He will listen to your story;

Let his love remove the stain.

               ****

Bring your hopes and dreams to Jesus;

Bring your struggles, joys and fear.

He will never overlook you,

For he holds your soul most dear.

              *****

Never think you have no value.

If you do, it is not so,

For he sought you and he bought you

On a cross so long ago.

              *****

When your soul belongs to Jesus,

In this life there is no fear

That our Master cannot conquer

And he’ll wipe away each tear.
