O for a glance of heavenly day
To take this stubborn stone away
And thaw with beams of love divine
This heart, this frozen heart of mine

The rocks can rend, the earth can quake
The seas can roar, the mountains shake
Of feeling all things show some sign
But this unfeeling heart of mine

Thy sorrows, too, unmoved I hear
Amazing thought! Which devils fear
Goodness and wrath in vain combine
To stir this stupid heart of mine

But something yet can do the deed
And that dear something much I need
Thy Spirit can from dross refine
And move and melt this heart of mine
