Lying in bed last night, trying to pray.
But the words won’t come, God seems so far away.
So the next morning, to my knees I fall.
Face to the floor, “Oh God!” I call.
The weight of my sin and guilt are too much to bear.
I cry out to God, “Are You there, do You even care?”
He says, “Yes, my child, and those burdens are not yours to bear.
I have been here all along, waiting for you to see,
That all You had to do was give everything to me.”
“But I don’t know how to let go!”, I cried.
He replied, “But my sweet child, this is why I died.
To take all of the sin, shame and guilt away.
You need only seek me and pray.”
“Then help me Lord, I don’t know what to do”, I plea.
He says, “Give everything you are to me.
Stop worrying about everyone around you, and please Me.
If you do this, you will have life more abundantly.
I gave My life for You, so that you could have a joyous life,
And not live everyday in constant strife.”
So with complete abandon, Lord, I give myself to You,
My habits, my addictions, and my rebellion too.
My worries, my guilt, my shame, please remove.
Pull me out of this pit and let me move,
Closer to You and Your cleansing blood.
Let it wash over me like a crimson flood.
As I let go of all of the guilt and sin,
Let Your Holy Spirit dwell within.
Wash me clean from head to toe.
And every day, let me know,
That I am never alone, You are always there.
Waiting each day, for me to share,
This life You have given me with everyone I meet.
Your love, mercy and unfailing love will never cease.
Thank you for Your grace that covers me,
And let me serve You eternally.
