If I Could

I'd put my hand on my mouth,
   shut off my own proud heart.
Turn off the angry fearful shout
   tearing you and me apart.

If I could I'd turn back time
   to right the wrongs I made.
I'd be yours with His heart fine;
   with love you would be safe.

I was led with cold conviction,
   away from your sad need.
Strangling my heart with deadly constriction,
   my love was left to bleed.

Now I'm here, saying, “I'm right,”
   in a cold and lonely room.
From my sin I cannot hide;
   a shadow that still looms.

If I could I'd dash conviction,
   for the sake of one so grieved.
Your relief my only mission
   to give you a hopeful reprieve.

I'd be there to welcome you home
   with a smile and caress so warm.
I'd be sure you're not alone,
   keeping you from Satan's harm.

But here I am, with my heart,
   not warm enough for wood.
Sad regret tears it apart;
   it whispers, “If I could.”

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
