Soul Cry

Father in heaven
Show me
The darkness of my heart
Tear open my soul
That I may revile the evil therein
I am wretched, I am poor
Have mercy, Father
Strengthen me to own
The truth of my wickedness
Spare me your justice
Save me from what I deserve
Cast me not into outer darkness
But deliver me from your wrath
Guide my heart
To confess my sin
Heal me
In your flooding grace
Bathe me
In the blood of your Son
Show me
The path of your will
And guide me
To walk ever in it

Stephen Pursell, 3/26/97
