Stirred But Not Changed

I was listening to a cd given to us by a Pastor friend called "Bury My Heart On the Mission Field". Its a great cd with a lot of good mission songs. This one here really got my attention. It was written by Lanny Wolfe (he also wrote My House is Full, but my Field is Empty). Here are the words to the first verse and chorus:

Have I heard it for so long that He’s just another song?
Has the story lost its thrill that I once knew?
Lord, give me a burden that’s so strong,
That it will last when my tears are gone.
I’m tired of what I’ve been. Lord, make me over again.
I’m so tired of being stirred about the lost who need to hear.
I’m so tired of being stirred that His coming is so near;
I’m so tired of being stirred till I cry bitter tears.
I’m so tired of being stirred but not being changed.

I heard that song "Bury My Heart on the Mission Field" last year at our church's missions conference. It is a GREAT song!

Oh, wow, I remember that song! It's been years since I heard it. Thanks for the brain food; I'll be thinking about this for awhile. ~Jennifer

Where can I find the words to the other verses?

Maybe if you google the song, you can find the other verses.
