The lyrics, unfortunately, reflect the state of the world today, but then also give us hope if we only seek it. I like the simple instrumental backing, especially the cello. Nice touch. You have a very nice voice which fits perfectly with this song.

    - Thomas E. McCue

Excellent performance. Great vocals, strong harmony vocals. The guitar playing is really tight, and drives the song along nicely. Love the cello (?) it really adds depth and variety to the arrangement. I really appreciated the coda ("pour out your spirit") which added a further dimension to the arrangement and meant that the song ended really strongly.

Lyrics

A HEART OF LOVE

VERSE 1
Bm7 A G Bm7 A G Bm7 A G
Wars & rumors of war, nation will rise against nation, disasters and earthquakes in various places....
G A G
signs of the end to come;
G D A G D A
malice & envy abound, being hated by & hating each other...
Bm7 A G G A G
the love of men has grown cold, there's no compassion for their brothers

VERSE 2 (same chords as verse 1)
Families being destroyed by drinking, drugs and adultery, man against wife, son against father, daughter against mother;
Innocent lives are destroyed, abused & neglected children and elders....the love of men has grown cold, there's no compassion for their brothers

CHORUS
But the Lord said:
G D A G D A
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you....
Bm7 A G G A G
I will take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of love
G D A G D A
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you....
Bm7 A G G A D
I will take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of love

VERSE 3
Bm7 A G Bm7 A G Bm7 A G
Famine & poverty, homelessness & loss, intolerance hatred towards one another...
G A G
killing for no reason
G D A G D A
Darkness covers the earth, and if you look into the eyes of our children;
Bm7 A G G A G
they see chaos, confusion, no hope for a future, no help to be found...

G D A G D A
the love of men has grown cold, the love of men has grown cold,
Bm7 A G G A G
the love of men has grown cold....there's no compassion for their brothers

But the Lord said:
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you....I will take away your heart of stone and give you a heart of love (repeat)

Lord put a new spirit in me, pour out your spirit in me (repeat 2x)

Lord put a new spirit in me, pour out your spirit in me....so that I can love my brother
