From Stone

Fleeting thoughts of more
batter at my gates
But my intransigence battles back
and reinforces my wanted fate

I’ll not change even though I’d like
to be transformed from who I am
The pull to live in stasis
Is greater than the push for what I can

Oh but for grace’s power
To move in my stubborn soul
Hear O Lord my true desire
Let new life in me unfold

Forgive me Father my heart of stone
I know not what I do
Move in me and have your way
In flesh my heart renew

From Stone
