My Great Failure


How can I be a witness?
     How can I be a light?
When my great failure hovers
     Never quite out of sight?

No-one can see God’s beauty
     Past my enormous scar.
That failure life o’ershadows;
     My test’mony doth mar.

Don’t let the faults of bygones
     Rob you of fruit to-day.
Don’t let it mar your image
     And haunt you on life’s way.

Ah child, your King is sovereign.
     He’ll cleanse repented sin.
His sweet forgiveness granted
     Doth His acceptance bring.

Don’t let the faults of bygones
     Rob you of fruit to-day.
Rather seek God’s forgiveness
     To wash your sins away.

So that the faults of bygones
     Buried, discarded are,
Letting you advance forward
     Without a crippling scar.
