A Sinner's Plea

Make me the lesser of your servants, Oh Lord

for you are the only reward that I crave.

As the colors of your love paint my weary soul

So do grand masters paint heaven .

The poem of your grace falls as rain in the desert.

Like a mosaic of compassion, you inspire me,

as I feel blessed and whole.

Make this your servant, into a river of love.

Disregard my heart's contempt.

but keep my plea close to your heart.

Take my pain as living sacrifice

for my heart has offended your name.

Take my hands and build paradise.

For my hands are your hands if they bring hope.

For you have aided me Lord! My heart was breaking!

As in your grace my soul is mending.

God, even sinners have a soul.

So in the darkness I've dwelled too long,

and my soul is in need of your light.

Look at me and bring forth salvation.

Say my name, and set me free.

Psalm: 25

16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.


This poem is from that part of me that knows that I need God in my life and why.

      This is so wonderful we all stray sometimes even as Christians but is good when we admit to being a sinner and turn back to the old rugged CROSS.

      Thanks for sharing this hub

      May Adoni hear your prayer and supplication and set you free.

      Oh! Anan! This poem has so much urge in it! A sinner's urge for salvation, redemption... his soul crushed by the realization of his dark world and crying out loud pleading... with the last life in it.. for god to look upon him and have mercy...

      I pleaded with him! I cried with him! Such was the beauty of this verse

      You can be sure, the happiest life is one that has been yielded to service and in and placed into the hands of the Master.

      Beautiful poem! I think you have expressed the soul of a sinner well in your writing, especially the "so in the darkness I've dwelled too long". When they finally see the light it makes them realize who much they have missed. However, He is so forgiving and helps us to become a stronger, better person. Love your youtube post - the pictures within it are awesome.
