1 Oh for a glance of heavenly day,
To take this stubborn heart away,
And thaw with beams of love divine
This heart, this frozen heart of mine!
2 The rocks can rend; 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,
O Lord, an adamant might melt;
But I can read each moving line,
And nothing moves this heart of mine.
4 Thy judgments too, which devils fear,
(Amazing thought!) unmoved I hear;
Goodness and wrath in vain combine,
To stir this stupid heart of mine.
5 Eternal Spirit! mighty God!
Apply to me the Saviour's blood;
'Tis His rich blood, and His alone,
Can move and melt this heart of stone.
