Forgive me for those foolish thoughts-
Ideas which leave me paralyzed

Forget all of my broken faults
that come and steal away my time

Conceal me from temptation’s taunts
or guide me though it’s mines

Then find me if at last I fall-
Restore my soul and mind.



I saw a broken soul

Yearning to be whole

While by his side there stood a fool

Who wished to be annulled.

I witnessed grace unmerited

Life and love the benefits

And also sins dark heritage

While critics shouted rhetoric

I’ve seen more than I asked to see

I’ve lived more than I wished to live

I’ve been more than I wished to be

I’ve lost more than I thought to give.
