Cheeky Missy

Repenting Oneself

What have I done?  What did I do?

When I gave reign to sin?! 

Why did I not, when I was tempt, 

Yield to Thy voice within? 


What have I done?  What shall I do?

 For I've much grief within; 

I thought to spare myself much pain, 

When I gave leave to sin.

How foolish was I!  What made sense?

 For Wisdom's way is peace.

The way of sinners' only pain.....

Why did I not Thee heed???

I've sinned, O Lord,....what shall I say?

 Thou knowest all my sins---

I now confess what I have done: 

Forgive me all my sins.

Forgive my sin and heal the pain, 

Restore Thy peace within; 

Cause me Thy Way to caref'lly keep, 

And keep me back from sin!

    Very well constructed and clearly a very personal piece. As a poem I like it dearly.

      Thank you very much. Sadly, the conclusion testifies against me.

      I liked this poem very much. It just makes me want to read it over and over again.

        Thank you. I like to think it is applicable to all of us, and yet, if the conclusion were true, why am I what I am?
