Soul's Condition

Updated on August 9, 2014

I see my own wickedness.

When I think on my ways,

I turn my feet to your testimonies.

I run to you for rescue.

Deliver me from myself.

How humbling that you gave your life

For all to be free.

More so, that you did it for me.

I know the condition of my soul and

Am disgusted.

You know my soul's condition

Yet, you love me.

You give me your name.

Upon your mercy I heavily rely.

In your strength, please let me reside.

Teach me good judgment and knowledge,

For I believe in your commandments.

Use my afflictions to tell others of your love.

In you alone, can hope be found.

You have turned for me

My mourning into dancing.

Your care for me is an ever present song.

To you, dear Lord, I lift my hand to

Bless your holy name!

      Fine piece. As another Hubber once told me, "It's nice to know that Psalms are still being written!"
