I’m met by guilt on every day. It sweeps my peace of mind away.
It starts with little things at dawn – why did I go and sleep so long?
My socks don’t match – my hair’s a mess. Did I forget our morning kiss?
The laundry grows to mountainous heights. My to-do list gives me a fright?
Our meal tonight will be a breeze, if frozen meat will please unfreeze.
I’m guilty over silly things like dirty toilets and tub rings.
A gallon jug with just one drop – a delinquent bill that I forgot.
I never can do one thing right. I’m late for work – I’ll stay tonight.
I’m guilty over big things too. Like doing things I ought to do
A smile for one who feels down cast – a prayer, a hug, a forgotten past.
Lord, you know my frailties. You’ve given everything for me,
You’ve paid for every single sin, that haunts and makes me sick within.
Help me to see your perfect grace. May I soon see you face to face.
Redeemed and perfect bought by you. Give me the power to follow you.
I pray you wash my guilt away, with every other sin today.
