My ODE to 2014 - Failure and Forgiveness

O how I fail to keep your law!
I am aware of my sin all the day.

Your commandments I know .. yet I fail to keep them so.
For they are ever in my mind.

I have this insight everytime I face your word.
No teachers, no other testimonies .. your word exposes all my failings.

Maybe I seem to understand more than the aged,
Because I know that your Word and Your precepts are TRUE.

If only I could restrain my mind and my feet from every evil way,
That I may know .. and keep Your WORD.

I run and hide .. and turn aside from Your WORD .. Your Ordinances,
But YOU .. Yourself .. pursue me and teach me .. .

I know in my "knower" ..  Your WORD is a "light" unto my path,
The map and Direction as my way to go .. a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.

Forgive Me Lord .. for being so stubborn and head-strong ..
Forgive Me of my sins .. through The Blood .. you shed for me on Calvary.
