The Window of the Heart

We may grow weary and faint of heart
We may want to quit before we start
For trouble haunts us and weighs us down
Burdens leave us broken and bound.

We have a weapon to wield and raise
The power to direct our gaze
A gift of choice that we can use
To choose to change our point of views

We set our minds on higher things
We wield this weapon and spread our wings
Our minds are set on things above
Pursuing peace and joy and love.

The mind`s the window of the heart.
Don`t let our thoughts dwell on the dark,
Open the window Lord, set our sights
To seek the Son and see the light.

Beyond the roots of brokenness
There is real truth we can confess
And if we set our hearts aright
We`ll overcome and fight the fight.

Fling wide the window of the Heart
Lord as we consider You, You`ll start
To transform minds that will pursue
The good the beautiful, the true.

Whatsoever things are true, whatever things are honest,
Whatsoever things are just, that purity conveys,
Whatsoever things are lovely, or things of good report,
If there be any excellent ways, or anything worthy of praise,
Think on these things for all of your days!

So take the gift from off the shelf
Re-think, repent and rend your self
Reflecting on the better part
Open the window of the heart.
Open the window of the heart.
Open the window of the heart.

Hebrews 12:3, Romans 8:5–6, Colossians 3:2, Philippians 4:8
