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
