“Might there be any among us who will confess to never err?
Nor, to have some deep regret for thoughtless word or selfish care?”
I wish I were never among this crowd
Where pride and ego win their ground.
But, we all have small and arrogant ways
Vain little things we do and say.
How secure my conscious was
And thought I’d sin no more.
How deceiving are the smallest things
How they mislead us to death’s door.
So I cast myself down as dust at His feet
To be broken and crushed, humble and meek.
My pride must be broken, my self will lost
All laid on the altar whatever the cost.
And may I be struck with great remorse
Guided by faith to get back on course.
For, if I bow and take the blame
God’s grace will lift my head from shame.
May I not fear any weakness exposed
For, it’s a time to choose and a chance to grow
To gain freedom from sin, may I stray no more -
Father forgive me I beg once more.
The cross He carries bears my name
It is my sin and shame that make Him hang.
Yet, it is at this cross my soul finds peace
From its burden, sweet release.
