Joyce Berry – You Gave Me A New Heart lyrics

A stony heart is broken and melted
By the touch of the Master's hand,
And a new heart is imparted within
When the Lord delivers a man.
His dark spirit is now alive and new,
Enabled to keep God's command,
Cleansed from every idol and filthiness
By the touch of the Master's hand,

So you will never end the day when you're of a bad mind.
Don't think that you're just time away
So we must be close to each other and just be thankful and kind.

You gave me a new heart
When this old heart of mine was broken into pieces
And now I need you by my side
So we must be kind to each other, for life is so short;
You gave me a new heart
When this old heart of mine was torn into pieces
And now I need you close to me
So we must be loving, loyal and thoughtful.
Can't you see that we each must have a good heart?

A new creature now praises the Savior,
A taste of heaven's joyful shore
Sins removed as far as east is from west
Never remembered anymore.
What a privilege to serve the Master,
Rejoicing as never before'
Oh, praise His precious name for A New Heart
A taste of heaven's joyful shore.

You will never be sorry you said the good word;
There is nothing sadder than a word not spoken... The word not heard.

Repeat Chorus

Once I was half a woman, but then you made me whole
When I was half a girl,
You made me whole and gave me a new heart
Now my life is complete,
So we can stick together
As we remember the good things, the fine younger years
And recall of the past, the grace of our peers.

Repeat Chorus and fade
