I don't know the fire you've been through
To make your heart black glass
Don't know which heartaches tempered you
Or the trauma in your past
I only know the promise
Made by the faithful One
His words are true, powerful
If you call on God's own Son
He promised to take this heart of stone
And make it all brand new
To give you a heart of flesh
That will more than see you through
How can I be sharing this?
Because He's set me free
And traded me a heart of flesh
For that obsidian stone in me.
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. NIV
