I used to pray daily
down on my hands and knees.
I used to help others
in there times of need.
I used to be a light
to those surrounding me.
I used to carry my cross daily,
and walk in humility.
I used to have a heart
UNCORRUPTED and pure.
I used to not yield to temptation
when sin knocked on my door.
I used to know YOU, and recognize Your voice
until I chose to stray.
What a grave mistake that was!
A price no one can afford to pay!
But now I long with desperation - inside I yearn
I’m all spent out like the prodigal son and to You I want to return.
