 Repentance

Now I lay me down to die
At Your altar, here I cry
As Your holy word is spoken
All undone, my heart is broken

Sensing now Your holy gaze
Searching all my thoughts and ways
Unable to give my defense
As You expose each vile offense

Painfully, now it is clear
The sins that I once held so dear
Each one a thorn that pierced Your brow
How hideous they appear now

And crushed beneath the guilt, I hear
A sound so sweetly in my ear
“There is One who yet abides
Christ, Who for your sins has died”

Looking up, through tears I see
The Saviour, on the cross for me
Bowing then with all contrition
Bringing to Him my petition

“Though my heart is black with sin
I hear I may be born again
If I repent and then confess
I may receive Your righteousness
With all my heart I long for this
I pray I might receive this gift.”

Heaven hears, new life begins
Completely new and clean within
Another heart now set ablaze
Another voice to sing His praise

Hearts transformed and lives made new
A work that only Christ can do
And so the kingdom does advance
One by one, with repentance

This My Only Need

I sought a door to open first
to replace the one that closed,
but my search has found two other things,
my searching now transposed.

Along the way I found a well;
in my thirst I stayed to drink.
So sweet the waters to the taste,
the door I did not think.

I found a shepherd who let me in
to the fold for which he cared,
and again the door for which I sought
I forgot while I was there.

This well and shepherd that I’ve found,
the source of life for me;
my seeking now has been transposed,
what door could better be?

No longer do I seek the door,
but the well and waters sweet;
I seek the shepherd who cares for me;
my every need to meet.

This the door to other doors
through which in time He’ll lead,
but now my part to follow close;
this my only need.
