Let Thy goodness, like a fetter bind my wandering heart to Thee.

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it.
Prone to leave the God I love.
Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it
Seal it for thy courts above.

How often I feel this exact way! I so desire to give myself and my life over wholeheartedly to God, and when I experience moments of God's undeniable greatness, I just sit and marvel at His grace. But soon after, the spiritual high fades, and my heart gets distracted by all the other things in life that clamor for my attention. I just wish I had this fetter I could bind my heart with. I want to keep it close to my Father's heart.
