On Goodness

Lord, I am corrupt; something I know well

For only evil is found within my heart and bones

Far have I strayed away from your will

And in my soul, I hear your Spirit’s groans.

The path of righteousness: unclear in me;

I need your arms to set me free

I corrupt and destroy your beautiful things

Sadness and death: the only devils man brings.

Life eternal brought in your eyes;

Teach us goodness from the skies.
