If your heart was an open window
that people in passing could see.

Would they see chains that bind it
or would they see a heart set free?

Could you display its many secrets and say,
“it’s mine” with pride?

Or would you look the other way because
of the things you would like to hide?

From the innermost parts of man
comes the desires that we seek.

And from the recesses of the heart
comes the words that we speak.

As it controls our every action
while through this life was trod.

Can you without hesitation say
“My heart belongs to God?”
