LOVE RECONCILES - Sacrament Of Reconciliation
Timidly I approach,
My heartbeat crescendos
Deafening my ears.
Aware of my sin stained soul
I fall on my knees seeking mercy
Beseeching You to bless me.
And I confess.
Trembling, I touch the tassels of Your cloak
That seamless garment of love
Woven with pity and compassion
And once again grace imbues my soul.
Healed in mind, body and spirit
I am whole.
Fear dissolves, melting into sorrow
For having wounded You
Whom I love best.
Unbidden, tears wet my cheek
I firmly resolve with Your help
To never sin again.
The Voice that spoke
Two thousand years ago
Speaks again those blessed words
Restoring me to grace,
“Go in peace, your sins are forgiven.”
Grace wells, drawn from Living Streams,
In the warmth of Your benediction.
