Story behind the song
An obscure hymn by Thomas Shepherd. I updated the wording of about 30% and added choruses. It was one of the hardest songs I've done yet. The meter was so strict I couldn't improvise as much.
Lyrics
My heart is harder than a stone And only wakes to play, But not to humbly think upon My sins of yesterday. The last night's failures well might make My callous heart to grieve If I would stop to contemplate. If I would just perceive. Oh! Hard, harder than a stone, My icy, frozen heart! You ask for all But still I've kept Some chambers barred. Oh, Lord! You see my frozen heart, And Oh! How little love. I owe you all, but give you part. Send healing from above. Oh keep it tender! Keep it soft! Do not be distant long. Send down your warming rays of grace, And I'll send up a song. Oh! Melt, melt the ice away And do not hide your face. I give my heart. Claim every part. Leave no more space. The saints, they all lament and cry, They fall before your throne. Give me their hearts, and then shall I. Lord, roll away this stone. Oh, make my heart much softer still, That by your gracious hand A deep impression may be made, From every small command. Oh! Hard, harder than a stone, My icy frozen heart! You ask for all But still I've kept Some chambers barred. Oh! melt, melt the ice away And do not hide your face. I give my heart. Claim every part. Leave no more space. Oh! Make my heart still softer, for I'm like your mourning dove. I mourn because I cannot mourn, But, Lord, you have my love. Oh keep it tender! Keep it soft Until my final days. And I will set my lowest string, Unto a song of praise. Oh! Melt, melt my heart again To rivers of remorse, And turn the weeping waters To a better course. Lord, soften my heart again And tune it to your voice. Take every heartbeat captive For a joyful noise.
