Purify Your Hearts

The Lord commands us in His word
Our hearts to purify.
This task seems insurmountable;
I pray: O how can I
Fulfill this admonition, Lord?
I am so weak, yea, dead,
Unable to accomplish aught,
But violate instead.
Yet since He has commanded it
(I know His faithfulness)
He also will supply the means;
In mercy He will bless.
The feeble efforts that I make
He’ll transform wondrously;
The pow’ r, the willing, come from Him,
Not one bit comes from me.
I thank Him that He works within
To turn me to His ways,
That I may joy in seeking right
And render endless praise.
Lord, keep me and encourage me
Until the day I die,
To Thy name to glorify!
