Can I Be Saved?

Before my birth you knew my name

For you are the holder of my fate

Your compassion has extinguished my transgressions

My day of defeat was the day i was born

Because before I knew you my soul had been torn

By unrighteous things that were evil in your eyes

Cleanse my skin from the sin because i firmly believe

That i was unclean the day that i was conceived

Wash away my impurities and purify my soul

And i will be whiter than snow

Cover your eyes from the sins that reap in my bones

And create a heart that destines to be like your own

Do not let me out of your sight

For i have done wrong, and failed to do right

Save me from these spiderwebs

That have entrapped my lost soul

Grant me a willing spirit to teach those who have transgressed

And let my tongue sing righteousness

    your soul is washed is beautiful light, to speak these words is truly right, but by what troubles have you come to see these things, finnally see through right and wrong, and ask to be cleansed again, to be given a new name, and teach the rightness that you know, that inside your shown, i follow the path thats true to my heart, but do you follow your own path? or are you pushed such far.
