Wash Away

by Linda Jackson  
1/11/2019 / Poetry


I was born into it!

Not knowing what "it" was

But reeking like everyone around me

The stench, welcome to the family

Then I learned "its" name.....sin

Many have darkened my heart

I heard about You, Lord, how You came to do Your part

You came to wash me

But what can

Disintegrate

Consume

Scrub

Away what is deeply stained?

Strong enough to clean my blood of disease ingrained

Hate, lies, immoral thoughts

At such a young age, I tried to hide

What can restore Eve's purity lost?

Nothing the world is able to provide

Not

Mysticism or burning charms of men

Not

Mary, though blessed she is

Not

A cross of wood or gold

Not

Men who walked with You so bold

Not

Sun, moon or stars of showering rays

Not

Angels who bow and give You praise

Not

Inked skin or knife scared flesh

Not

Sweet aromas or a crystals gleam

Not

The whisper of cards or the lure of a comets trailing stream

What has the power to wash away my sinful lusts

Nothing, Nothing but the

Blood of Jesus

LJ/18

1 Jn 1:7;Rev 1:5,7:14;Jer 4:14
