The Sacrament of Confession (Reconciliation)

Christ paid the price of mankind's sins
By suffering and his death on cross;
‘Repent and enter heaven, all,
If you can have a contrite heart.'

Lord Christ sits in the confessional,
With heart of love for penitents;
No heinous crime or gravest sin's
Beyond God's forgiving power!

However long, you sinned since birth;
However much grievous your sins;
Whatever be your sinful load,
Christ can redeem your soul again!

Lent is the time to make amends;
Lent is the time to feel remorse;
Lent is the time to spell out sins,
And gain forgiveness, grace of God.

Oh, what a splendid Sacrament!
Oh, what a glorious time, God gives!
Oh, what a golden chance for souls
To reconcile with Almighty!

No man is perfect in God's eyes;
All are sinners until we grave;
Christ - Lamb of God takes away sins,
If you ask Him for forgiveness.

Confession is best solution
For sins of past and present, done;
Feel sorry from your heart in truth;
Reconcile with the mighty Lord!

God knows our iniquities all;
To forgive sins is in His plan
Of redeeming the world through Christ -
His only begotten Son, Lord!

For prodigal sons, Father yearns
With arms outstretched and heart of love,
To welcome them back to His fold,
And never more to lose his sheep!

Oh, what a loving God we have!
The God of love made us with love;
The Shepherd seeks his sheep, lambs lost,
And celebrates when they are found!

Go tell your sins of past to priest
And get his absolution fast;
Devils await to ambush souls
Like thieves that come to steal at night!

Confession removes every sin
And trace of every crime and hurt;
If you recount them to the Lord
With truly repentant, a heart!

Jesus annuls the rod for sins;
And grace of God comes down like rain,
To fill your soul and make it pure,
Preparing way for Heav'n again!

So, hurry and confess your sins;
Make haste and beg pardon from God;
Go talk to God and walk nearer,
For God's with us, are we with God?

‘Wish you a most wonderful Lent,2013! '

Children, too young to understand what keeps me
