For Your Praise

January 23, 2011

Too well acquainted to the shades
And shadowy regions of my soul
Am I, to even dare to take
A step towards the One who knows

The deeper, darker secrets hid
That I not dare to search within,
For twisted shapes that men forbid
That morals, laws both label sin.

But for this wicked heart to win,
You sent your Son, his blood to shed,
For all my hidden sins you pinned
On Him who became my righteousness.

Then seeping in your precious flow
In gushing pour of boundless grace.
Untwisted every knot, made whole
And new, a creature for your praise.

No longer will I hide in self
But hide in Christ, and no one else
