 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Confess Fully

Please have pity on me O Lord,
Do not let my plea be ignored;
Having mercy upon my soul,
As I relinquish full control.

Your unlimited compassion,
I know that you never ration;
Can wipe out my rebellious acts,
And that You will forget the facts.

Wash me thoroughly from my guilt,
That my salvation has been built;
And cleanse me of all of my sin,
So to have purity begin.

My sin has been in front of me,
I close my eyes as not to see;
But with knowing inside my mind,
I want to leave the past behind.

I sinned against especially You,
Considered evil deeds as true;
But You would never hold a grudge,
And You are blameless when You judge.

I was guilty of sin since birth,
Being corrupted by this earth;
Merely give me a chance to know,
Just how to be whiter than snow.

Please let me hear the sound of joy,
Not devastation that would destroy;
Let these bones have a broken dance,
And forgiven sins to advance.
