Our Inner Man
By Marie C Neubauer
Our inner man no one can see
It is shrouded in mystery
Except for God who sees inside
And knows the secrets that we hide.
Our hearts are seen by God alone
All our thoughts and motives are known
Who can heal a heart from within
So tainted by the wounds of sin?
A contrite heart our Lord will see
And faith in Christ shall set us free
God will change our hearts from within
When through Jesus we come to Him.
Hearts are melted by Jesus’ love
Lives transformed by God from above
His Spirit and ours in accord
Our inner man governed by God!
“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you;
I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
