take away my heart of stone,
my hardened heart,
my uncircumcised heart
and grant to me a new heart,
a heart of flesh, a clean heart!
O Thou who purifieth the heart
and loveth the clean heart,
posses my heart and dwell in it,
containing it and filling it,
higher than my highest
and more intimate than my most intimate thoughts.
Thou who art the image of all beauty
and the seal of all holiness,
seal my heart in Thine image
and seal my heart in Thy mercy,
O God of my heart
and the God of my portion in eternity.
