The Repentant Man - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns
David was a repentant man.
He confessed all his hated sins.
But he simply could not forget them.
What he said bears repeating again.
In essence, “Whither shall I go from thee,
Or whither shall I flee? ”
“If I ascend into the heavens,
You are waiting there for me! ”
“If I make my bed in Hell’s fire,
Behold, You are also there too! ”
“If I take the wings of the morning,
Or dwell in the uttermost depth of the sea,
Even there shall Thy hands lead me,
For the darkness hides it’s face from Thee! ”
Now Robert is a repentant man.
He confesses all his hated sins.
But he simply can not forget them.
Until He Who’s Perfect comes again!
