Give Us Hearts

From Blog09

Give us hearts
full of you,
full of love,
service, too.

May our heads
think for you,
thinking well,
think what's true.

May our arms
work for you,
strong to help,
faith in view.

By your grace,
Lord, you do
make us whole,
make us new.

We thank you.

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
--Ezekiel 36:26 ESV

NOTE: This scripture verse is addressed to the house of Israel, but I believe it can fairly be applied to all who trust in Jesus and are thereby grafted in to the spiritual Israel of God.
