Looking Beyond

Written by: Jeanette Priest

                     LOOKING BEYOND
                I look beyond my faults
                  And what do I see?
           The mistakes, the bad decision
                   That follows me.

              I look beyond my faults
               To control the stain of
               Guilt and shame that 
                   Hovers over me

                 I look beyond my faults
             Trying to push the tears away-
           Of my contempt and my dismayed

               I look beyond my faults-
             To gather a sense of reality.
                    But in the end
     Glory be to God, He is the gift that keeps
        On giving. The power, the might,
          He will make everything alrignt
           By looking beyond my faults
