Prepare your Heart

If there is a longing in your heart
This world cannot satisfy
If there is a hunger in your bones
That you cannot classify

There is Consolation and redemption
Restoration, liberation
Forgiveness and freedom The past healed,
Pardon and power and your future sealed

So prepare your heart my friend
Put off the empty praise of men
To satisfy your soul
You need to be made whole

Redemption of your future
Consolation of your past
Beyond what the world can give
Beyond the praise that never lasts.

Prepare your heart and pray to God
For the Truth that was concealed.
That God would open up your eyes
And that this treasure be revealed

Prepare your heart so you may see
The Power of Christ unveiled
To reckon His reality
And see His will in you prevail.
