face burning with shame
I released my sins from my soul
and laid them at Your feet
they came forth from my mouth
with quavering voice
fear held me in its grasp
as I held my breath and
awaited my condemnation
"I am not afraid of your sins,"
was the kind response,
and my heart was soothed
"Just place them gently
into My Sacred Heart
where all pain is transformed."
"I will carry you, and protect you
and forgive you. I will make
all things new."
And Spring grew in my heart then,
with its warmth and flowers
bursting through the hard ground
I am alive again, reborn
forever I will live in His love,
His peace and His joy
"Look to Him that you may be radiant with joy,
and your faces will not blush with shame."
