The guilt within

The scars outside

The God of the universe

Opened my eyes

Like shutters they opened

And let the light in

The light so blinding

Showed me my sin

The scars within

The guilt on my face

I feel myself slipping

And I cry in disgrace

The scars on my skin

So thick and yet thin

Are like knives

Cutting in again and again

I look up in sorrow

To view the bright stars

The God who made those

Must be so big and so far

But wait! I can feel Him

He has to be near

He whispers so softly

"Please do not fear"

He is awake and

He is alive

The God of the Bible

Is right by my side

I can't forgive myself alone

But He has forgiven

For everything I've done

I am forgiven
