O My Lord, there is no one vaguely like Thee,
Who has the ability to forgive me of my iniquity.

Failure to accept Your grace is a sin of pride,
since Your presence within me, can divinely reside.

Forgiveness is a powerful weapon for my wounded soul,
when I recognize that only You can truly make me whole.

Help me Lord, to rightly walk in love without hypocrisy;
help me observe the Christ - in everyone I meet and see.

Donít allow poor, quarrelsome behaviors to rise up in me,
for ungodly uproars may create opposition to Godís decrees.

Remind me to be kind, gentle and tender-hearted to those,
who still suffer under the weight of sinís deathly throes.

In the remainder of my days, I will continually confess,
that Iíve been cleansed of all traces of unrighteousness.

Despite my human imperfections, my spirit wonít be riven,
knowing that I am greatly blessed andÖ still forgiven!







Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Matt 20:25-26; Acts 10:38
