At times, Lord, I seem so icy,
My heart frozen withing me,
So sharp I could cut anyone in two;
So cold to others I could freeze them too.
Hard, unmelting, unforgiving, unloving.
Often unable to warm to anything.
Lord, when I’m in these moods
Please send your Spirit
To melt my frozen heart,
To warm my chilled soul.
Come, Holy Spirit,
Help me make a fresh start.
Enkindle in me the fire of your love.
