My heart is like a palace, one day I let my Saviour in.
There were many quarters where we would
Visit now and then
One day we approached a door that was
Firmly shut even to me
A place where I never wanted to venture
Where the pains of a forgotten past
Would flood from the ground and…
I would collapse on the crushed terrain
In shame at the knee deep sin of my life
One day Jesus looked at me with tears of love
On his face, and handed me the key
And whispered to me:
‘let us go into your secret place’
And let me cleanse you from the inside out
I said Jesus I am not ready to go into that place
A place of deep hurt and shame
A place where all the hurts of the past
Would bubble up to the surface
Like an erupting volcano.
Jesus said if you don’t trust me
How will you ever become whole again?
How will you ever heal?
Let me go into your secret place
And love you the way you need to be loved
So I opened up that door
And the two of us walked in
Jesus held my hand
Comforted me as
I was filled with guilt and shame
But when I think of that room now
I am not afraid anymore
Cause I know my hidden sin
And I now know that my hidden sin
No longer hides behind that door
Instead I have been cleansed from the inside out
By the power of my Saviour’s love
My Saviour looks at me with tears of love
On his face and smiles
And says you have been forgiven
You have been set free.
There was a place once in my heart
Where I dare not venture,
But now I venture and face the
Strongholds of my life
With the help of Jesus by my side.
Is there a place in your heart where
Even you won’t go?
