Disrobed Confession

Oh wicked wretch that I am-

Seething, grasping, lecherous fool.

How I drain the draft of the damned!

How I allow the aimless appetite to rule!

 

Oh forgetful, sleeping sinner!

Slinging aside the whole of Truth!

Greedy sins spill from my center-

Lusts of flesh and sins of youth.

 

O Great Salvation, apply Your balm!

Scrub, scrape, scour off this crud.

Imbed me in Your bloody palm-

Cleanse me in Your flowing blood.

 

Forgive me all my sins and stains.

I justly deserve death from Your hand.

I throw myself atop Your pains-

Unable to plead, unable to stand,

 

Deal with me as You desire.

Remember I am dust and sin.

Heal me, or cauterize with fire,

Only do not leave me to the hands of men.

 

I am wicked, but I am Yours.

Comfort my conscience again.
