I Have the Key

God our hearts spill over with praise to You! We overflow with thanks for Your name is the “Near One.” Psalm 75:1 TPT

I Have the Key

I have the key
To Jesus heart
It’s at the beginning
A Precious part


The start of my day
Continues until noon
Then onward I go
By evening swoon

A one of a kind
Integral part
It is a precious key
This key to His heart

It Cannot be purchased
Not available for franchise
It is poured and molded
Not for the ignorant only the wise

It is a special key
That you must embrace
Cannot be copied or ignored
Each one kept on display

What is this key
And where do I apply
It is fashioned from purity
Pours out of your eyes

It is tears and sobs
When you see His face
When you come to realize
He took your place

When out of pure desire
You behold Your King
It’s golden and glorious
Awe invoking inspiring

When praises like rivers
Out of your belly flow
Bowing before Him
This is how to grow

Willing to be molded
Into a work of art
That is the key
The key to His heart

For we each are a masterpiece
From The Potters design
Created in Christ Jesus
No counterfeit but a one of a kind

It is a praise in the morning
With prayers and rejoicing
Giving Him entrance
Agree while endorsing

The key is our praise
Acknowledging all He has done
So don’t wait any longer
To His Throne we must run


You’re His own workmanship
Created to show His glory
You’re are a special key
to unlock His story

That others may share
In His kingdom inheritance
Don’t wait another day
Use your key open the entrance.

It is a song and a prayer
Given new wings
Rising from the ashes
Until my soul does sing

Praise Him in the morning
And when it seems dark
Because praise is the key
To our Masters heart!

To all music lovers and readers of musical notes, you know that a clef is a key. A clef is a musical key, we don’t need to play an instrument to understand this concept.

Key signatures, scales, notes, symbols, flats, sharps, minors, majors; all sound like prayers to me. Prayers as praise going up to the throne of our God. So indeed we have and hold the key to our Masters heart.

In marriage vows we say to have and to hold from this day forward.

In this week of love called Valentine’s Day week in the United States, I encourage to make Jesus your forever Valentine. The things of earth pale in comparison to tHis true love. Love originated from God, He is love. When our love flows out of praise to Him, we can be trusted to love others.


……and what is this I hear you saying king David, in the throes of agony while in anguish? Who are you pointing us to? What is it you have come to tell us?

Psalm 22:3 TPT

Yet I know that You are most holy; it’s indisputable. You are God enthroned, surrounded with songs, living among the shouts of praises of your princely people.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.


Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
