One day I was teasing my small grand-daughter and she said Gramma don’t call me that, and I asked her what she wanted me to call her. In her sweet voice she answered “Darling.” She indeed was and is my little darling but Jesus holds the forever endearment in my heart.
Darling in My Heart
by Brenda Drake
There is no one more special to me;
The most valuable, most important for eternity.
I will praise Him with words and songs new;
Reaching higher and wider to express all my heart wants too.
My Lord is high and lifted in my sight,
He is Savior, King, and my heart’s delight.
I marvel at the love He shared with man;
That chose to die so He could forever hold our hand.
He is beautiful and more precious than all the world’s gold.
He is the treasure within with value left untold.
He is the softest spot within my heart, soul, and mind.
I desire to honor Him in my life as I fit into His design.
He is my soul’s lover and the Groom that soon returns for His bride;
He is the Darling of heaven, and He is resident inside.
Jesus You are most precious, holy, and set apart.
You are the Master and the One called Darling in my heart.
Song of Songs 4:7
Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
