My Sin- His Forgiveness


Sometimes when I look up I remember my sins
Focusing on the lofty skies and grandeur heavens I recall
Those things I did in my mind without knowing they were sins
Then I fall helplessly to the ground after I have recalled

I look out with an eye of imagination
Thinking of my transgression and failure
I am being reminded of my indignation

But then I remember that I have a Savoir
I remember that I have One who died for me
I remember that His blood went forth as a sweet savor
Into God's throne when He suffered for me

Then I kneel beside my bed and pour out my heart
To the One who loves me so much that He died
I confess my sins and failure from the depth of my heart
To the one who saved me through His death
Suddenly I feel His presence
The One and only Redeemer by my side
Comforting and taking me in His bosom
The King of kings is by my side

To take away all my sorrows
That I had to bear because of my sins
He moves them from the ridge to the furrow
Giving me an assurance of freedom

Then I stand with a new heart
Embracing my Savoir with happiness
Thanking Him for His forgiveness and love
For He came down to replace my sorrows with happiness

Then I saw that his forgiveness brought me joy
That my repentance brought me peace
That His acceptance sparkled in me joy
And His countenance revealed peace

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
