O Lord, take away my heart of stone,
my hardened heart,
and grant to me a new heart,
a heart of flesh, a clean heart!
O You who purified the heart
and loved the clean heart,
possess my heart and dwell in it,
containing it and filling it,
higher than my highest
and most private thoughts.
You are the image of all beauty
and the seal of all holiness,
seal my heart in Your image
and seal my heart in Your mercy,
O God of my heart
and the God of my portion in eternity.
