The Holy Cross Redeemeth My Soul Forevermore

The Holy Cross Redeemeth My Soul Forevermore Your everlasting door Is of ever old My broken vessel you died for Your jealous wrath is rather bold Your breath giveth life Before honor is humility For your word is pure ,without strife For the flesh is weak and bound to fragility Your word is a double edged sword False lips shall not go unpunished Your mercy is without bound , Lord A mere lamb to the slaughter, I’ve been changed,demolished One of greed Broken spirited and quick to anger Sought the spoils of my deed Bone and flesh, he seeks forth grander Death shall be his doom He’s fallen to mischief and deceit Forever trapped in that burning room Broken without remedy , boastful of conceit My faith shall be restored Of God’s never ending love Of a faith I can’t afford Peace shall surely come thereof Forgive me in the name of Jesus My blemishes are wounds unresolved I’m at a state of grievous My faith is weakened in concentration, nearly dissolved I need you now more than ever before My heart is in calamity and disarray I will seek your kingdom forevermore My heart’s been out on display And gnashed by a human beast Shredded into pieces and pulled apart A man is likened to a priest A false prophet of the devil stole my heart Ran with it and laughed He is wicked and plays tricks He claims to practice the dark craft All in all my heart harden as bricks Lord of all lords, Bring peace after such catastrophe I long for joy at the end of the tunnel I wish for nothing but you Cleanse and filter me through your funnel You are great in all you do Let me see you in all your truth Do all you promise you would Give me a little more proof Reassure me that it’ll work out for the good I will praise thee for as long as I live I repeant of my sins And I shall surely forgive And count my wins Marckincia Jean Rhyme 05/05/20
