lyrics

Heartbeat of Jesus
Words & Music by Lindy Hearne & Hal Greenwood

1.
Old man on the corner
Closes up his business.
Goes home to an emptiness.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
Next door there’s a young girl.
A lover has come to call.
Their shadows light up the wall.
Heartbeat of Jesus.

Chorus:
Heartbeat of Jesus.
That’s what I feel here.
You can hear it so clear.
Heartbeat of Jesus.

2.
Through the next window
A passing stranger sees
A boy prayin’ on his knees.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
A gangster street soldier
Soft shoes and backwards cap
Tries to beat his own rap.
Heartbeat of Jesus. (Chorus)

Bridge:
Oh, can’t you feel it?
It beats through each moment of time
As we try to survive.
The heart that was shattered
Has somehow been scattered
Like seed on the winds
Of each of our lives.

3.
The old man lies quiet,
Reliving his many tears
As death gently calms his fears.
Heartbeat of Jesus.
The couple cry out in joy.
A young boy’s prayers ascend.
A gangster goes home again.
Heartbeat of Jesus. (Chorus)
