The Heart of Our Desire

During these days of Christmastide we often sing a hymn with these opening words: Jesus, the Heart of all desire, born of the Father's splendid light; You are the Sun of morning bright, coming to us in darkest night. With our focus on the Lord, we believe that all of our lesser desires find their fulfillment in Him alone, Jesus alone is at the heart of all our desiring. He alone is our refuge and consolation, our One Desire, though in our lostness we may lose sight of Him hidden and waiting beneath all else.
