Jesus Knows the Human Heart

Jesus knows the human heart,
Seeing through our masks and art.
He longs that we will come to Him
As this world's treasure is strangely dim.

He offers life that is pure and full,
In harmony with God's good will.
We chase our dreams like straying sheep
And wonder there's no peace or sleep.

He longs to hold us in His arms;
Guide our voyage through life's storms.
Glittering baubles fade away,
So many actors in a play.

He knows the treasure that will last;
Releases prisoners from their past.
New life forged on that cruel cross
To gain our victory out of loss.

Jesus leads us to our home,
The wondering sheep no more will roam,
Lighting up the darkest place
With the dazzling brilliance of His grace.
