I’ve been gathering strength (goofing off) for the year ahead; so here’s all I have:

Counting Stars

Fallen and Forgiven 

Fallen and Forgiven

You are great in Me,
Simply because You are God.
Remove from the midst of me,
Sin and the vestiges of my evil doing.

The Father of Lies has chained me,
As Samson to a pillar.
Satan beguiled me as a Delilah,
And I gave him reign.
His minions have reduced me to a beast,
Your noble child,
Fallen from great heights.

By Your mercy and forgiveness,
Thwart that Prince of Darkness,
Renewing strength within me.
Heal my wounds,
And place Your vision in my heart.

Bring down the House of Sin,
Make me as columns,
And I will bow before You,
Dying to the old,
And rising to New Life.
