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.
