Lord, I start so strong
And I try to war and to defend you
with sharpness and steel.
But Lord, I merely maim and wound;
You alone can heal.
And then, bewildered in the mess,
I start denying, all confused.
But Lord, that crowing in the night
has jerked my spirit to attention.
And now I know—You knew it then—
guilty—just like him.*
O Lord, compassionate and healing,
You prayed then.
And now I turn
in humble weakness and
to worship You—and then to strengthen them.
Hallowed by Thy name!
