About the song
Obviously, the Trinity is one of those mysteries that isn’t meant to be understood by us so I am trying to use human terms / professions and concepts to attribute skills / qualities to the Three Persons and still remain biblically sound. I made God the Father an Author, God the Son a Carpenter and God the Holy Spirit a Blacksmith. I then took those human professions and tried to use them to act on us in ways that would ultimately bring us to fulfillment; as an Author, God the Father would write and imprint my soul, God the Son, as a Carpenter could carve and frame my will / mind and God the Holy Spirit would draw out and forge my heart. This is all meant to refer to Mark 12:30 that states:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
This was kind of the overriding concept.

The reference to the Holy Spirit being characterized as a Blacksmith is a little unusual, no doubt but, consider for a moment what happens when the hot iron is pinched between the hammer face and the anvil. It is drawn out and molded much like the clay that Carrie Landry references when he sings “You are the Potter, I am the clay, the work of Your hands. Mold me and fashion me”, in the original song “Abba Father”.

The inspiration for using a blacksmith to represent the Holy Spirit came from my kid’s. They all attended a 3 day, hands-on Blacksmithing workshop. When they were talking about the Blacksmith’s forge and the intense heat, church bells started ringing in my head as I recalled this unfinished song idea on praising the Trinity.
Lyrics
“Reconcile Me”
(AKA / Abba Father, Son and Holy Spirit)
11/11/16 Final 9/5/17 Final Final

Verse
Abba Father, Author of my Salvation
Write on my soul, a faith-filled vocation
I shall be your child, & You will be my Maker

Imprint my soul with your loving decree
Passion and hope, all You desire for me
I shall not be afraid, I trust in You my Father

Chorus
Have mercy on my soul
Mold and shape my mind
Refine my heart
Reconcile me to you

Verse
Jesus, My Lord, the Craftsman of my will
Carve in me sainthood before life takes its toll
I shall become contrite, humble in my witness

Frame the path from here to Your kingdom
That I might live in the beauty of your wisdom
Unafraid, I will live fearless

Chorus
Have mercy on my soul
Mold and shape my mind
Refine my heart
Reconcile me to you

Verse
Holy Spirit, Blacksmith of purification
Draw out of my heart, love for Your Great Commission
Form me in the forge of Your perfect righteousness

Stoke the fires my heart must pass through
To quench desires that turn my eyes from you
Holy Fire, burn away my brokenness

Chorus
Have mercy on my soul
Mold and shape my mind
Refine my heart

Chorus
Have mercy on my soul
Mold and shape my mind
Refine my heart
Reconcile me to you

Tag
Refine my heart
Reconcile me to you
Reconcile me to you
