Teach me the depths of Your liking

As my soul yearns for much more;

The groaning and pain as it searches

Your treasures in us which you store.

Reveal to me all of Your secrets

Your eternal mysteries in life;

Unveil my heart and show me its shape

The hidden anger, the deceit and strife.

I pray You replace it my dear Lord

With the wonderful touch of Your hand;

With Your precious healing power

As the waves that stroke the sand.

And I ask You repair it afresh

Like a child so tender and true,

And I pray You make it a promise

To forever be faithful to You.

To love You dearly my Lord

With gentle kindness and peace,

And seal it with Your signature

Your warm embrace and loving bliss.

How sure and secure I’ll feel

When I arise one day to see,

The change I’ve yearned for in years

A brand new heart has been given to me.
