The short and simple key to knowing if you should use Who or Whom lies in the answer to the question being asked.

 

WHO did it? HE did. (Use WHO when the answer is HE, or SHE, or THEY)

For WHOM does the bell toll? It tolls for HIM. (Use WHOM when the answer is HIM, or HER, or THEM).

 

Notice that HIM ends in an M, as does WHOM. HE does not end in an M, neither does WHO. Keep this simple, but not absolute, rule in mind when trying to figure out WHO or WHOM.

 

However, neither would be correct in your example. "...Almighty one alone, WHOSE heart was of..."
