A poem about mans' wicked imaginations and Gods' mercy.
Abyss of the mind

That man cannot find

For it dwells deep within him

It brings us to cry

And the soul to sigh

The inner thing that we call sin





Man deems himself wise

But inside are lies

Who can save us from this plight?

Man sees with his eyes

That which poisons lives

But God returned to men their sight



I sought for the truth

That is tried by proof

Something that will fill the void

A cure that will cut me loose

His way will I choose

And mercy that He employed



It has surely come

Mercy from His Son

A wonder forged long ago

To his arms I will run

His breath fills my lungs

He has cleansed me white like snow
