Break


Father

Break our hardened hearts
Find our Pharaohs and defeat them
Slice to heal, so we'll feel
Not numbed your truth

And answers come
Your will is done
Though now by fits, in bits, on earth
The day will dawn--who knows what year--
Night will fall
Away to endless day
But that's not yet

Fill us
     Will us
Wear us
     Tear us
If you must
But break our hardened hearts

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. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. (Ezekiel 36:26-27 ESV)

Thank God for that new Spirit in our heart. Without it, we'd never be able to please God.
