Jesus-Good-Shepherd-03

I do what I shouldn’t do

And that makes God sad.

I go where I shouldn’t go

And, then, I feel bad.

I say what I shouldn’t say

And cause someone pain.

O God, why do I do this

Again and again?

Like a wind-blown weather vane

I twist east and west,

With no help to guide me choose

I try what seems best.

But, I still search night and day

And always in vain.

O God, why do I do this

Again and again?

 

 

********

 

No more will I wander far

From God’s helping hand

And struggle and flounder

In sin’s sinking sand.

I want God’s eternal promise

More than worldly gain

So I’ll follow Lord Jesus

Again and again.
