A Plea

just one sin
entering in
brings with it
a gaping pit
of endless sorrow.

so, before tomorrow
I beseech Thee
to hear my plea:

O Lord I know
my iniquities show,
but Your mercies I seek
with a heart quite meek.
help me ne’er to stray
neither from the righteous way
nor from Your side;
let me abide
by Your light—
even in the darkest of night.
