I took a walk with Him today.
Explained my sins along the way.
I had excuses for each one,
and felt so good when I was done.

For each excuse I had to give,
He showed me how I should have lived.
For each was lame, I had to say,
but hoped that I’d get by today.

For every lie I told, He cried,
for that is what He’d not abide.
For every sin I did today,
was one more pound I had to pay.

The thoughts, impure, He saw right through
and told me what I had to do
to make amens, and carry on
a child of God, not satan’s pawn.

I listened close to what He said,
I wanted so much to be led
back to the path He’d bled for me,
to feel my soul, once more, be free.
