One More Day
by louis gander
9/09/2013 / Death
My life was not worth one red cent
for I was never innocent.
I chose to live my selfish way -
and lived it every single day.
So soon prepared, rectangle hole.
They'll close the casket on my soul.
"For all have sinned" and it will be
that we had wished we'd lived for thee.
Now when they lay me down to sleep -
they'll dig that hole and dig it deep.
Lost soul, forever, under sod
who lived for 'self' instead of God.
If I had known grace can't be bought,
if I had given life more thought...
If God could grant me one more day,
I'd be sincere - and this I'd say:
"Please give me faith instead of grief
and save me as you did the thief -
who humbled self, who was a man,
who did repent as I, too, can.
Please humble me, I quote the hymn,
"without one plea...", "just as I am..."
Forgive my debts, forgive my sins -
then help me boldly tell my friends."
