Why must you look to the past,
When to the Lord, it does not exist?
It's been wiped out by prayer and fast.
So with bringing it up, please cease and desist.
I am sorry for what I've done.
I regret I have ever done those acts.
So in prayer, I went to the Son.
He has erased those sinful facts.
Why bring up the past?
Why, oh why, oh why?
Into the pit my sins have been cast.
So to the past, please say goodbye.
The Lord has cleansed me of my crimson stain,
It is no longer on His mind.
It has been drowned by His holy rain.
Just like the chaff, it's gone with the wind.
If you have a burden that's weighing upon you,
Ask the Lord to lift it off your soul.
Making it forgotten, He will gladly do.
You will feel so clean and whole!
Lord, there is none beside, nor before You.
Domine Deus, tu solus sanctus. Amen.
