It seemed unusual when l first thought of
sorrow and repentance…
As a gift.
We know we ought
To lift our souls in petition to the LORD.
We pray for
In these, sorrow and repentance are
Depend on the Creator;
Being dependent, we are made strong.
Presuming that we can be sorry,
Presuming that we can repent ourselves:
That we can save ourselves.
Depend on God the Father,
For sorrow and repentance.
