Purify my heart
Let me be as gold and precious silver
Purify my heart
Let me be as gold, pure gold
Refiner's fire
My heart's one desire
Is to be holy
Set apart for You, Lord
I choose to be holy
Set apart for You, my Master
Ready to do Your will
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from within
And make me holy
Purify my heart
Cleanse me from my sin
Deep within

    Brings in my heart the presence of God and help me to know how Mighty God is for without my surrender I am nothing. He is the refining fire.

    God, purify my heart, my life, my hands, and my desires. I desire to see your reflection instead of my own. Change me, mold me into your image.

    The words don't need defining to me. I understand the way fire is used to melt and purify precious metals. But in life, for me, that means that all the hard things i've experienced are just part of making me just exactly ready to do something in holy service for my master. That is truly my desire.

    For the past few days this song just kept coming to my head and not to mention that this song has always been one of our worship song but today after a long time i had an urge to listen to this particular song and i realize this song has more than the lyric along or what the writer has actually written... It reminded me how bless i am with this life that he has given me,however we always fail to be on the right track caught up with our many worldly duties ... Which leads us to break his heart each day whereas our desire should be to always be ready to do his will and make him proud through our work. So this song for me is to go deeper and seek him to stay stay refined, not through words and flesh alone but also be ready to do his will and not mine...
