Abba

1. Abba,
Please forgive my sins,
So I may rest in you
And share your peace.

2. Adonai,
Please heal my ills,
So I may serve your people
Without cease.

3. El Shaddai,
Please redeem my soul,
So I may see your face
Beyond death’s shore.

4. Elohim,
Please crown my life,
So I may sing your praise
For evermore.
