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.
