When we fail You, Lord, do we feel that You failed us
By allowing us to sin and fall from Grace?
Does our freedom of choice make us hear the wrong voice
And attraction turns our gaze from Your face?
We may look at Adam and Eve; wonder why they were deceived
Yet that weakness shows its strength many times
Are we no wiser now since our hand’s been on the plough
As we struggle with life’s reasons and rhymes.
Well the answer of course is that in God we have recourse
He will forgive if we truly repent
Our free will is God’s gift to give us an aim and not just drift
He gave us a future and with hope it should be spent.
