by Brooke Fraser

I see the king of glory
Coming down the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes, the whole earth shakes
I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing, the people sing

Hosanna, hosanna
Hosanna in the highest

I see a generation
Rising up to take the place
With selfless faith, with selfless faith
I see a new revival
Staring as we pray and seek
We're on our knees, we're on our knees

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity


Every time I hear this song, I'm especially convicted by the line "break my heart for what breaks yours". It seems like so much of what upsets me, what frustrates me and what angers me is, in the scheme of things, very petty and selfish. It is a powerful prayer to ask to delight in what pleases the Lord and to grieve what He finds worthy of grief. Can I look past my own problems long enough to recognize the larger hurt in the world and in those around me? Can I align my heart to God? I need to remember to pray for this relationship, even when I'm tempted to focus on me, me, me.
