A Letter To Jesus

A Letter To Jesus ode

Photo by sflovestory

Oh Lord Jesus, lover of my soul,
He that shineth upon my poor heart.
Cleanse me of every ungodly role
that pierces thee like a fiery dart.

Deliver my soul I beseech thee,
from the deceiver’s ravenous jaws.
Cause me to take delight in thy laws,
that I may be eternally free
from guilt and divine retribution.

My penitent and remorseful state
I pray you willingly consider,
that I may not have to share the fate
of those in eternal damnation.

My life I willingly surrender
to thy loving and caring Lordship.
seal our lasting relationship
with thy precious and redemptive blood.
All these I fervently ask thee Lord.
