The Chambers of My Mind

"The chambers of my mind"

In the chambers of my mind
Lord I fear that you may find
The secrets looming in the ways
That I've hidden all my days.
And so I've tried to keep you out
Of those hallways and those rooms
Filled with doubt and dressed in gloom
In the chambers of my mind.

Should I turn the keys, my Lord
To where those secrets now are stored
And should I let you walk right in,
To my shame, You'd find my sin
Hiding, growing, bringing doubt.
Those sins are tenants living free
Sheltered, hidden, Lord by me
In the chambers of my mind.

I've grown accustomed to their ways
And gone as far as to obey
Their subtle demands and vile requests
That keep me from being at my best.
I cater to their every whim
For fear of being exposed in shame
Lest each one should cry out their name
From the chambers of my mind.

Take these keys, Lord from my hands
For only you would understand
That I'm too weak to come against
These creatures that I now detest.
Bring down those walls, break down those doors.
By your grace now I can see
The only prisoner here is me
In the chambers of my mind.

Search my mind, go deep within
Clear my mind of secret sin.
Remove the doubt, the lust the fears
That I've had hidden all these years.
Cleanse me with your precious blood.
Allow your light to fill this place
And let your throne, my King, replace
All those chambers of my mind.


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

It's good when the Lord can give you insight, and he has done here, very encouraging piece.

Not only a great poem, but a great strategie to let the light in on the evils in our heart.
David Michael Chambers 02 Jul 2003
BRAVO! This is a very insigtful and honest work. You have been able to point out things that we all are guilty of. I can't say it enough, wonderful work. Keep it up and may God continue to bless you.
