"WORK OF ART"

Verse 1
If I were an artist, I could share what's in my heart,
Explain my deepest feelings in an inspired work of art,
Sing it in a melody, or write it in a poem,
Paint it in a picture, or chisel it in stone.
But if this work only minister to pride,
Would it be better to break me,
Take what's left, & then remake me.

Chorus
Make my heart a work of art,
Dear Lord.
Take the broken pieces,
Make me someone new, dear Jesus.
Make my heart a work of art,
Dear Lord.
All the joy & beauty
Will come forth when You shine through me,
Lord.
Shine through me, Lord.

Verse 2
Just like a piece of clay in the Potter's hand,
Mold me & make me into a new person.
But if there's a flaw in me, then break me again.
Cleanse me & set me free from all of my sins.
With the Master's touch, the work has just begun.
Though there may be more tomorrow,
Your love has washed away the sorrow.
