Standing on my Own


I tried, Lord

by myself to stand

thinking to use my own resource

to keep from sin

unaware my own resource

is sin

Adam and Eve also tried

to stand alone

and failed

as do I

each new day

Oh, my God,

reach down

as once you did for an other

and pull from this sea of sin

that struggles so to claim

one washed by your own blood

save me before I am lost

and dead

and damned
