Hearts (Psalm 51:10)

Are our hearts all destined to rust
To just rot and decay inside ourselves
With each beat do the walls erode
Soon to turn from flesh to dust

For those who gave their heart away
Is there forevermore an empty space inside
Or will it be returned in a thousand tiny pieces
The pain of which beats us down each day

Yet You my Lord are the one whom we call
The only one who can bind up the broken
The only one who can rebuild from the ruins
You my Lord will catch all those who fall

So my Lord I pray for a heart remade
One so pure as it beats for you
With a steadfast spirit inside of me
A heart of flesh that will never fade

Psalm 51:10
