Hope

I want to do what is right, so why do I cling to what is wrong?
I keep giving into temptation and now I don’t feel so strong.
I will my thoughts to honor you, but I just fall astray.
Yet on the outside I appear as if everything is okay
I seek to satisfy my soul with things that will all pass away
And the truth is God I’m hopeless and a sinner in every way.

Lord will you break down the chains and shackles from my sin?
Forgive me and free me to be your child again.
Wipe away the guilt and wipe away the shame
I long to be renewed in You every single day.
I want to run as fast as I can into Your arms again.
You my father, you my lover, you my caring friend.

Every change I undergo seems to break me even more
The ones I love have hurt me like I’ve never been hurt before.
But you my God have promised you will never leave me
No matter how many times I sin you take me and make me clean
And  by your blood and sacrifice I know your word is true
And  for this reason I know I can always put my hope in you.
