God told me He would restore me from the mess I had made

He went to my shelf and pulled down my book

Then He grinned and said come closer, let's take a look

Inside was written the words under the blood

My tears kept falling creating a flood

So now when I fail Him and miss the mark

He takes me back to the cross to make a new start


( God be praised )
