1. Some people honor with their lips
but it never reaches their hearts.
This can cause a subtle conflict
and their will can't get a good start.

2. I want to be of one mind and one heart.
I want to serve You body and soul.
But it's easy to be torn apart
when my mind and heart are not whole.


I want to be one heart with You, Lord.
I want to have the same frame of mind.
For if my heart and my mind are not in line,
then I'm divided on the inside.

3. Lord, You know everything about me.
I know You're greater than my heart.
So I pray You will strengthen me
to have the same soul, mind and heart.

Chorus twice

Help me not to be divided on the inside.

Great smooth vocals!! Beautiful lyrics!! Nice instrumentations!!wonderful message of asking the Lord to be like Him, or we will feel " divided on the inside"!!! Nice hook as well!!

real nice voicings, nice playings and the tune i hve to say nicely done instruments slow in the background and the guitarsolo just feeds perfect in . i would put you between soul and easy listening to rock from the timing and the voice reminds me even from soul to spanish singings

I would recommend this song. I can see this song being used as background for movie trailer. Think it was a fresh approach to saying something familiar. want my heart to be one with Jesus etc.
