The Psalm

Psalm 34 (CSB)

The Prayer

My Life and Heart
Why would you spare me?

I have seen the evil that men have done
  I have seen their sins stacked up
  miles above
  oceans deep
  filling the earth
  with treachery and debauchery

My sins filled more
  overfill all oceans and canyons
  I have done more evil in your sight
  than all of humanity
  I am the supreme chief of sinners

But yet
  you saw me
  not the good that I could ever do
  but the wickedness that was in me
  and you pitied me
  because I was a fool
  and you sought me
  because I was lost
  and you loved me
  because I was completely unlovable

When I saw your glory
  from the deepest, darkest parts of my heart
  I cried out in agony and pain,

And your sweetest, only begotten Son
  laid his mighty hand on me
  and quietly respond,
  "I do not condemn you"

Now, only because of You
  that I will go
  and sin no more.

Praise be to your loveliest name.
