Saturday Song: No, Not Despairingly

No, not despairingly

Come I to Thee;

No, not distrustingly

Bend I the knee:

Sin hath gone over me,

Yet is this still my plea —

Jesus hath died.

Ah! mine iniquity

Crimson hath been,

Infinite, infinite

Sin upon sin:

Sin of not loving Thee,

Sin of not trusting Thee,

Infinite sin.

Lord, I confess to Thee

Dasly my sin;

All I am tell I thee,

All I have been:

Purge Thou y sin away,

Wash Thou my soul this day —

Lord, make me clean.

Faithful and just art Thou,

Forgiving all;

Loveing and kind art Thou

When poor ones call:

Lord, let the cleansing blood,

Blood of the Lamb of God,

Pass o’er my soul.

Then all is peace and light

This soul within;

Thus shall I walk with Thee,

The loved Unseen:

Leaning on Thee, my God,

Guided along the road —

Nothing between.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
