Lord, I Stumbled and Fell!
Lord, I have stumbled and fallen once again!
By hanging on to a stubborn sin!
I once thought, “My life will never get off track,”
Until that one day after I committed
such a sinful act.
“No one’s watching me” was what I thought,
I didn’t now the pain and suffering,
into my family, that I brought!
That moment of “pleasure,”
I hoped would go away,
But sin stares me in the face, every day!
Pride crept into my once cheerful heart,
It’s now eating at me! Tearing me apart!
I once thought I was ”too good,”
to commit a sin like this!
Many of God’s blessings, I now will miss.
To you Jesus… My whole heart,
I ask you to cleanse.
It’s in YOU! That my life depends.
Create in me a clean heart!
Renew a right spirit within me!
Your forgiveness in my life,
is what others must see.
The most important thing,
to God that I can give…
Is a broken and contrite heart,
each day I live!
