Blots of shame stain my life
as I forever sin.
How could this God I find
change the shape I'm in.

I hide because of what I see
it hurts me deep inside.
I stumble and I fall again
display my foolish pride.

The weakness that possesses me
grinds me to the bone.
I see no relief in sight
causing my soul to moan.

In life's barren desert
my sins fill every day.
The weight they put upon me
will cause me to pass away.

I have no hope, empty inside.
when I said, “achoo.”
A man standing next to me
said “God bless you.”

Suddenly there was the answer
staring me in the face.
So I fell upon my knees
asking God for grace.

A warmth possessed my body.
a tear was in my eye.
I felt the Lord had heard me.
He will help me try.

It is really something
what words are said to you.
Can lead you to a straighter path
and show you what to do.

The strength I have to resist
I gather up each day.
God gives it to me so freely
He does it when I pray.

The next time that you sneeze
your life's about to change.
With the words “God bless you”
your life won't be the same.

Absorbing. A perfect counterpoint to my dark take on this topic!
