I Took A Little Sin


Dear Lord I took a little sin
      To come and dwell with me,
So small it wasn’t seen at all
      And hid from all, but Thee!

But now this little sin has grown
      And robbed me of my joy.
It has become my master.
      I am in its employ!

My child, you cannot harbour sin
      Without a consequence.
You’ll steep your live in misery
      And lose your confidence.

Repent in earnest penitence.
      Seek My forgiveness true.
I’ll wash away that monstrous sin
      That’s busy ruining you!
