~ An Hour With You~

I Hide My Face...

I hide my face from You this day,
Shame is my friend, I bid it stay.

A yoke my sins have woven round,
My neck oh Lord, my head hangs down.

Disgraced I am for what I've done,
I turned my back upon The One,

Who gave me life and cleansed my soul.
Bound up my wounds, and made me whole.

Entangled by my sins I am,
Your wayward child, Your fallen lamb.

There's mercy at Your cross for me,
Forgiveness beckons Lord I see,

Your nail scarred hands they bid me come,
And yet Dear Lord I can't succumb,

To You, though You wait patiently,
God of Forgiveness there for me.

Your yoke was light, Your burdens few,
But still I chose to stray from You.

And now Your gaze I cannot meet,
I crumble prostrate at Your feet.

No secret meetings were arranged,
No silver coins, no kiss exchanged.

And yet I turned my back at will,
Love betrayed is betrayal still.

And now I find I can't You see
Forgive myself for hurting Thee.

I hide my face from You this day,
Shame is my friend, I bid it stay.

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

"...But You are a God of forgiveness..."
Nehemiah 9:17

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,
 from whence cometh my help.

Psalm 121:1
