FORGIVE, FORGET

Dull and drab that is how I feel

A feeling I cannot conceal.

Do not even care to hide it now,

Before this bleakness I now bow.

.

.

Not bow, I mean I just give in,

Capitulate if that is a sin.

Cannot retaliate just now

I just admit and humbly bow!

.

.

But remorse I cannot feel!

To Higher Power I appeal!

Is this a symptom of some sin?

Have I allowed some thought within—

.

.

To interrupt your tender voice?

I am sorry but it is not my choice,

But wait!  I did let indolence

Interfere with my defense!

.

.

So once again I humbly bow

That is something I cannot allow.

My spirit yearns to stay within

The confines of your love, to cling!

.

.

To you, my Savior, One whose love

Would lift my thoughts to realms above

And keep them there where I would be

Useful leading men to free–

.

.

Them from pains of sin and shame

With its now and forever pain.

To lead all to Your side and yet

There are some I cannot forget.

.

.

My aim is not, I recognize,

To lead all to that highest prize.

My love for all, my true regret

I am just not there, not ready yet!

.

.

Dear Lord, forgive!

.
