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
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
Mysticism or burning charms of men
Mary, though blessed she is
A cross of wood or gold
Men who walked with You so bold
Sun, moon, stars or volunteering for missions far
Angels who bow at Your throne
Inked skin or knife scared flesh
Sweet aromas or a crystals gleam
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
1 Jn 1:7;Rev 1:5,7:14;Jer 4:14
