Confessions*

Though I'm not at all what I'd like to be,
I hope you'll understand. . .
My thoughts and deeds aren't "good as gold":
They're more like worthless sand.

So far as east is from the west,
So far my sin's removed.**
Embraced by Jesus's perfect grace,
I know I'm always loved.

My love for God is really true,
My faith in Him sincere. . .
Now I reach to others, too,
To show I really care.

So after a trying day of work,
When stress just runs away,
I hope you realize I know inside
It's still a lovely day!

*"Confessions" of both sin & faith
