Contrition

Please help me Jesus

I don’t know what to do

I’m all alone and desperate

I’m crying out to You.

Please help me Jesus

I don’t know what to say

Words escape my lips,

My thoughts in disarray.

Please help me Jesus

I don’t know where to go

Choices sit before me –

But still I don’t know…

Please help me Jesus

I can’t feel You near

I can’t make my heart change

I’m lost I fear!

Please help me Jesus

I want to do what’s right

I want to follow your ways,

For they preserve my life. 

Please help me Jesus

I’m crying out to You

Don’t abandon your beloved

To your Word hold true.

Please help me Jesus

Shake me to the core

If this the measure You must use –

Continue, I implore!

Please help me Jesus

I know my cries are heard

You, who can redeem,

Despite what I deserve.

Please help me Jesus

In the throes of the night

Wash me clean with hyssop

Make my heart contrite.

 

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart O God, You will not despise.  Psalm 51:17
