“I will take away the stony heart.” Ezek. 36. 26

C. Wesley                   7s

1
Dearest Lord, what must I do?
Only thou the way canst show;
Thou canst save me in this hour;
I have neither will nor power.

2
God if over all thou art,
Greater than the sinful heart;
Let thy power in me be shown;
Take away the heart of stone.

3
Take away my darling sin,
Make me willing to be clean;
Make me willing to receive
What thy goodness waits to give.

4
Teach me, Lord, with all to part;
Tear all idols from my heart;
Let thy power on me be shown;
Take away the heart of stone.

5
Jesus, mighty to renew,
Work in me to will and do;
Turn my nature’s rapid tide;
Stem the torrent of my pride.

6
Stop the whirlwind of my will;
Bid corruptions, Lord, be still;
Now thy love almighty show,
Cleanse my heart, my mind renew.
