As an open letter in Your sight

So vulnerable and naked

In awesome fear of Your might

So holy and so sacred

A broken heart so bruised and fragile

From betrayal in the past

It requires Your tender touch

So any bitterness won’t last

Reconstruct my moral fibres

So this heart begins to love

And forgive all ignorance

Pour Your mercy from above

As my heartbeat is awakened

With a blessed refreshing start

I will love with much compassion

With a kindness set apart.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”  Psalm 51:10
