Jesus holds my heart (poem)

Updated on February 16, 2015

“Jesus holds my heart”


Have you fallen in love?

Wanting to be with that person with every chance you’ll have?

Cherishing the day you said yes,

Feeling the uproar of romance inside your chest.


Looking him in the eyes, butterflies inside!

Creating memories together; dreaming to be his faithful wife.


A beautiful commitment, ‘til death do us part!

A beautiful tale of a man and a woman’s heart.

The warmest feeling in happiness you’ll fly!

Putting to death the dread of a broken heart’s cry!


But I have a better story, more colorful and true!

But it’s not about me and you.

Nor is it about him or her or anyone in this entire world.


It’s about the love of a glorious, sovereign and holy Lord;

How he loved, saved and restored,

My soul humbled to the core for He calls me “mine,”

For I, a lowly and wretched worm,

Was graciously chosen and loved,

Redeemed and justified!


In this great story it’s not just butterflies that dwell within;

But the blessed Holy spirit who enables and teaches.

Blessings of His glorious riches!


And it’s not about what I can do or give,

But all about what He has done,

All glory and honor to God’s beloved Son


My soul longs for Him day after day;

So many things I ought to know,

So much more wherein I need to grow,


So many battles against so many foes,

But by His grace, His purpose and His love,

Though I can’t, I am secured for He is the great I AM.


Jesus who holds my heart,

He is my story, my love and my life.

The Alpha and Omega----The King of Kings,

To Him alone, my whole praises gladly bring!


No matter how much love I will feel and receive,

No husband, no ring,

Though I will cherish it so,

Can ever surpass the love I’ve received from the King


Let Him be first! ---in our heart, mind and soul,


Let me faithfully live as I await your final call.

      That was a wonderful testimony, Michelle, of your love of Christ. Many Christians struggle with loneliness around Valentine's Day and other holidays. Your poem is a sweet reminder that they are not alone with Christ's love. My favorite line, "Let Him be first ---in our heart, mind and soul." Very nice poem, voted up and beautiful.
