When unsuppressed feelings take charge,
I often overindulge my yearning heart.
Oh yes, that’s the deep danger of
Releasing myself in worldly lust and love.
And when that passion ceases and finally ends
My soul is torn and empty once again.
I need to safely guard my wayward heart
In everlasting truth and the way of the Lord.
He wants me to turn and to flee far from sin
Knowing it breaks and tears my heart within.
It burdens my spirit and leaves great pain
With feelings of guilt and hidden shame.
Oh such sad deep grief I often do bear
When I’ve fallen into sin’s deceptive snare.
Time to be still and quietly kneel before
The Lord admitting in my own words,
“Lord, I have sinned again and am so sorry;
Please do forgive me and still love me.
Help me to turn away on this new day
From this great sin that impedes my way.
Help me to do my best to live and be still
Inside the pleasant boundaries of your good will.
Thank you for sending Jesus to give
His own life so that I may forever live.
For upon that cross oh so many years ago
He paid for all the wickedness of my sinful soul.
Help me to constantly remember you through this new day
And lead me Lord renewed as I journey along life’s way.”
