BREAK MY HEART OF STONE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Jesus, let thy pitying eye
Last Line: And break my heart of stone.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ


Jesus, let Thy pitying eye
Call back a wand'ring sheep;
False to Thee, like Peter, I
Would fain like Peter weep.
Let me be by grace restored;
On me be all long-suff'ring shown;
Turn, and look upon me, Lord,
And break my heart of stone.

Saviour, Prince, enthroned above,
Repentance to impart,
Give me, through Thy dying love,
The humble, contrite heart:
Give what I have long implored,
A portion of Thy grief unknown:
Turn, and look upon me, Lord,
And break my heart of stone.

For Thine own compassion's sake,
The gracious wonder show;
Cast my sins behind Thy back,
And wash me white as snow:

If Thy bowels now are stirr'd,
If now I do myself bemoan,
Turn, and look upon me, Lord,
And break my heart of stone.
