A Psalm

Have mercy upon me
Oh Lord
For I have sinned.

In my weakness
I have faltered
And my weakness is great.

It is easy to hate a weak man
It is easy to hate myself
It is easy to see the part as though a whole.

But you oh Lord are good
And I would tell of it
Praise be to God the good.

Yet my story still seems dark
And my chances very bleak
And so I hesitate to speak…

And my silence wounds my own heart
And I am cut to bleed
And so I speak first to myself.

Praise the Lord
For He is good
And He is your answer.

Listen my heart,
For He is good.
