The Gift of Repentance

 Man is dead in sin
 not able to turn from it
 held in satin's captivity
 chained in sin unable to quit

 But God has a gift
 to meet man's urgent quest
 to rid himself of his sin
 so God invites as His guest

 So the guest receives this gift
 and so unwraps it
 God has given this present
 the guest has what is His

 But what is the gift?
 man can now turn
 and repent from his sin
 knowing eternally no need to burn

 God's gift of repentance
 gives man hope of salvation
 able to live in holiness
 be part of God's holy nation

 Now able to turn
 to truly repent
 live a God honouring life
 sin's curtain is now rent
