A Reflection: Flawless


Wretched the word

The songster had chosen

Wretched the plight

A wilful life broken

Memories of ill

Besmirching the past

Selfish agenda

Where peace will not last.

This the condition

That robs me this morning

Bleating out blame

And all the Law’s warning.

Oh for a rescue

Through One Who won’t fail me

Ending the guilt

And dark thoughts that jail me.

Tried all the rest

Now Jesus is pressing

Pledging a life

And flawless new dressing

His the right heart

And the perfect adhering

Offered through grace

To erase all guilt’s smearing.

Yes, offered to me

Totally free.
