235 (L.M.) Joseph Hart

O! for a glance of heav'nly day,

To take this stubborn stone away,

And thaw with beams of love divine

This heart, this frozen heart of mine!

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.

To hear the sorrows Thou hast felt,

O Lord, an adamant would melt;

But I can read each moving line,

And nothing move this heart of mine.

Thy judgments too, unmoved I hear —

Amazing thought! — which devils fear;

Goodness and wrath in vain combine,

To stir this stupid heart of mine.

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.
