What Must I Do?

Written by: Louise Picek

God,
what must I do?
How do I show you that I trust you,
want to know the truth?
I have been on my knees,
is that enough for you?
Will your grace truly cover me?
How many times must I confess,
must I try to make up for who I was?
They say just once,
but how could a wretch like me 
find forgiveness from just once?
Do you still look at me
and see the lies,
the thoughts,
my pagan ways?
Do you shake your head,
and tisk tisk at me?
Say child,
you should have just listened to me?
God,
what must I do?
Here I am,
coming to you.
Assure me that just once,
is the truth.
