Tormented by unconfessed sins’ grief gloom My soul is vexed from its self-righteous poise Defying it draws me nigh toward angst doom Denying thereby haunts me with guilt’s noise. Justifying as human nature feat My heart blames pride of its dominion height Midst the championing insult of deceit Leaving me forlorn, bereft of bliss’ light. Seeking forgiveness against distress-woes My spirit clamors for serene haven Trusting the Lord God to vanquish sorrows Claiming His love’s clemency from heaven. Grateful to Christ for His pardon-filled grace I bow down to Him, exultant with praise.*
*Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him. January 10, 2020 Honorable Mention, "STRAND SELECT G..." Sponsored by Brian Strand; judged on 2/8/2020.
