1 O. for a glance of heavenly day,
To take this stubborn stone away;
And thaw with beams of love divine
This heart, this frozen heart of mine!
2 The rocks can rent; the earth can quake;
The seas can roar; the mountains shake;
Of feeling all things show some sign:
But this unfeeling heart of mine.
3 To hear the sorrows thou hast felt,
Dear Lord, an adamant would melt;
but I can read each moving line,
And nothing move this heart of mine.
4 Thy judgments too unmoved I hear,
(Amazing thought!) which devils fear,
Goodness and wrath in vain combine,
To stir this stupid heart of mine.
5 But something yet can do the deed;
And that dear something much I need.
Thy Spirit can from dross refine;
And move and melt this heart of mine.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
