O heart, O heart I am sick of you.
Why must you torment me this night?
Give up, surrender, and let me go;
Stop this awful, unending fight.
You know you cannot even have
This thing for which you long.
Listen to wisdom and be still;
Don’t yield to this desire so strong.
O Lord, O Lord, I give you this heart
With all its hopes, and dreams.
I will do what you will in my life
No matter how hard it seems.
You know my true thought and intents;
You see to my innermost core.
My every impurity is exposed
And I can’t stand here any more.
O Love, O Love, You are all I need;
You bring the fulfillment I crave.
My heart says I need something else,
But all my love for you I save.
This is my precious sacrifice;
I pour my treasure store for You
Though I want to hold on to the desire
I give it to You to break and make new
O heart, O Lord, O Love,
This is my only plea:
Take away every wrong desire
And replace it with Thee.
