I can decide for my heart

I can decide for my heart
by Joel Howard

Of all that I can't do
The top of my list is changing you,
Friend from whom I long to receive 
love and faith and hope and belief

What comforts me in my limit is 
that I can change the heart of my self time and time again
I can get from the Lord today's grace that I need
to be the best loving friend I can be

In the driest of times when hate seems to win
I can excavate love for brothers in my heart again
Praying for those I've hated to lose
For my heart alone am I allowed to choose
