Can You love me--even now?
Iíve added fuel to someoneís fire
Through gossip--that wasnít my desire.
Whatís wrong with me, why do I sin
Though in prayer each day begins?
My knees are bruised I fall so often,
Help my hardened ways to soften.
Opportunity just passed me by,
Another time I dared not try.
And now regrets will drag me down,
I failed to focus on Your crown.
Mistakes--so many fill the sack
Thatís flung upon my bended back.
Removing bricks, the load gets lighter;
But then I grip the bag much tighter.
Help me, please, get through this day.
Shut my mouth so I wonít say
Words that sting or hinder those
Whose struggles I cannot suppose.
Please break the chains that Satan jerks,
And help me do more godly works.
Draw me nearer to Your side
And take away my sinful pride.
Fill me up where I am hollow,
With Your love so I wonít wallow
In the mire that makes me snap--
Forgive me for todayís relapse.
I beg You, help me to discern
Scripted words that I may learn
To honor, through each dayís behavior,
You, my King, my Friend and Savior.
