A Prayer...


You have searched me oh Lord and you know me
My shameful, vile innermost thought
But You love me still in spite of my ill
And cover my guilt with your blood

I cannot flee from Your presence
Though sadly, I admit that I’ve tried
When my guilt and my shame burdened me with self-blame
You placed Your grace o’er my pride

Lord, give me a heart of discernment
So I may hold fast to the right
Teach me your way and help me to obey
For You are the Way, Truth and Light
