My heart aches to tell my story,
Guilt and shame keep it inside.
But Lord I know you’ve written the ending
That will take me on a glorious ride!
Regret and sorrow overwhelms me.
“Remember not the sins of my youth”.
In Mercy and Grace Lord, You replaced me
From paying a shameful sin debt that was due.
Now I am worthy of your Kingdom riches,
No longer and outsider just looking in.
“While we were yet sinners Christ died for us”
Though the timeline of “yet” was before my life began.
To those your foreknew, you also predestined
So you knew at Golgotha the sins I would commit.
Yet you took that cup from me, and when you drank it
My sin was no more, yes You said, “finished”.
There is no reason now to feel regret, shame or guilt,
Because in perfect love my life you’ve rebuilt.
So, I’m lifting my head, on you my eyes are set.
Praising the understanding of the simple word “yet”.
