The Penitent Petition
O Lord, deliver me from the folly of my own sin
Cast it into the Abyss, never to be seen again,
O Lord, my enemies make plans for my demise
Rescue me and let all the evildoers then realize.
That You see into the depths of a sinners heart
To see if there is contrition to make a new start,
I wear sackcloth and confess that I have wasted
Time and resources and too often have I tasted.
The bitter taste of my salty tears on my tongue
So much folly did I sow in my soul when young,
I imagine that there is a throng of the violent
Desiring to see me bleed until I am all spent.
Please deliver me, O Lord of the heavens and seas
I will with diligence follow Your laws and decrees,
I desire a godly Goshen and place to faithfully serve
To work with my hands in a garden that all observe.
To praise You in my spirit all throughout my many days
To be Your child and a jewel in Your kingdom always,
Shall be my penned petition and to You I humbly bow
I pray this in the name of Jesus and hope you will allow.
Your perfect will to be done in my life as it is in heaven
May I be transformed from the six into Your holy seven,
Such are the thoughts of this man on the day You made
I shall live by faith, walk in love and will not be dismayed!
