Poem: Tears Of Contrition - Poem by Joseph James Breunig 3rd
Circumcise my sinful heart completely,
cutting away the unnecessary leaven;
give me Christ's aching heart for others,
that they may hear the message of Heaven.
Consume my existence with Your Presence;
permit my measure of faith to expand;
train my tongue the fervency of prayer;
demonstrate O Lord, the working of Your Hand.
As a Child of promise with sober reflection,
allow me to share Your anguish for the lost.
Wash over me with the wisdom to persevere,
since my Lord has paid sin's ultimate cost.
Teach me more about eternal damnation;
genuinely imbue my spirit with fervent devotion;
allow this soul to experience true sorrow
with latter rains from… tears of contrition.
Loosely based on:
Josh 5: 2-10; Gen 17: 10-14,23-27; Ecc 7: 20;
Zech 12: 10; Matt 26: 36-25
