It was something that needed not to be.
But today I heard a voice call out to me,
When through my tears I could not see.
I had truly become an embarrassment,
Not a single promise could I really keep.
And while the guilt of sin embraced me,
I found this night I could no longer sleep.
I was blinded by sin’s running essence,
With my faith now as low as it could be.
I was drowning in my continued sadness,
Wanting this hopeless feeling to fade away.
If I could only lift myself from the ground,
And by my own strength again stand tall.
But by my own selfishness I was powerless,
No longer in my life having any hope at all.
I could not even see a foot in front of me,
And the pressure inside was very crushing.
A dread feeling I now felt embracing me,
While away from me my life was rushing.
My once strong heart seemed about to topple,
But will I now turn and answer the call?
As I heard the voice once again call my name,
Saying come to me and you’ll no longer fall.
But at that moment I still felt so worthless,
As I turned to where I heard the voice come from.
And in a down pour of my souls crushing guilt,
By his mercy and grace was my salvation won.
I wondered why He never gave up on me,
Why from me he never turned away,
For many times I turned away from his call,
Never deserving of his holy mercy today.
My Lord I am not worthy to come to you,
As I am an embarrassment in every way.
And as I spoke I felt his arms embrace me,
Saying yes my son, but I forgive you today.
