Desires Of The Heart

I WANT  a home in the city  above;

A home from sin set free; 

For I know that Jesus shed his blood,

To purchase that home for me.

I want to be purged from  my  evil ways,

And walk in the narrow way; 

I want to know the will of God,

And cheerfully obey.

I want to be faithful here below, 

Do the work my Saviour has given,

And, by my words, and actions, show 

To others the way to Heaven.

I want my affections  centered above;

On things that are pure and divine; 

I want to taste a Saviour's love,

And that shall quicken mine.
