A Prayer

30 Sep

I wish I could never hurt a friend
That I was like a saint
With no taint
Perfect
That I can do no wrong
Like an angelic throng
I wish I could never hurt a friend

Here I am in the state imperfect
Full of things vile like a dirt pile
Heart battling with guile
Defective
Unworthy of you
Unable to be true
Here I am in the state imperfect

Would you still accept me?
Will you still condone me?
My transgressions?
Would you shut your eyes?
Will you hold out your hands?
And say friends again?
Would you still accept me?

“Come now, let us reason together,”
Says the Lord. “Though your sins
Are like scarlet, they shall be as
White as snow; though they are red
As crimson, they shall be as wool”
– Isaiah 1:18 KJ21

    Beautiful. Touching. Humility redeeems and elevates. Magnificat and Psalm 51 blend in many ways here
