Soften my heart, soften my heart. rock

Give me words of compassion and gentleness.

Relax my neck, relax my neck.

Lead me to work of welcome and peacemaking.

Soften my heart, soften my heart.

Open me to deeds of courage and power.

Relax my neck, relax my neck.

Release me from the fear of failure and the grave.

Amen.
