Redemption Song

My hand is stained

My heart is tainted

With disloyalty, my life i have painted

My love for righteousness has fainted

Upon my life, iniquities shone his derisive glee

Transgression is my hymn,

Hymn with sound so reproofing like the buzz of a bee

I drink sin like water

Oh Father, am coming to your altar

Desperately i need your anointing

Like the prodigal son, i run to you Father

My clothes are tattered

My thoughts are scattered

My pride is battered

My dreams, let them not be shattered

My sins are numerous, with them i know i cant be prosperous

To you oh Lord, i write this piece,

pour joy into my heart and turn my pain to peace!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
