My sorry life

 

Lord, 
I lay my sorry life
Before you –

Folly, weakness, 
Ignorance, 
And fear.

Sickness, sin, 
Self-pity, 
Deep resentment –

This is the 
Wretched harvest 
Of each year.

Hear me, Lord, 
As I bow down
Before you;

Save me, 
Though I have betrayed 
Your trust. 

Forgive my sins;
Restore and heal 
My body; 

And lift up 
My poor spirit
From the dust.
