.:: Clean Am I ::.

Clean am I before my Lord
Washed am I in his cleansing word
Though sin talons at my face
Though my lips breath curse and praise
Though verse of doubt I've too oft writ
The eyes of forgiveness see none of it

Clean am I before my Lord
Saved am I from doomsday's sword
Though thy love I've scarcely shown
Though I've wept when the cock hath crowed
Though stumbled have I in miry's pit
The pierced Savior's hand it washes it

Clean am I before my Lord
Mortality's river I shall ford
Drink will I of angel's food
Take hold the redemption of the rood
And drink the blood shed to remit
The sins of my soul, he sees none of it

Clean am I before my Lord
Washed am I in his cleansing word
Clean am I before my Lord
Saved am I from doomsday's sword
Clean am I before my Lord
Mortality's river I shall ford

Clean am I before my Lord
Clean am I before my Lord

    General CommentThat reminds me of what baptism does; it frees people not only from sin, but from any trap. I have seen it being so real! That is the only way to be freed from whatever has trapped us. That is the way and there is a way, as long as it is done through proper authority. When you enter into these waters of baptism, you realize, it is not just a symbol or a belief put in people's minds, it actually frees your spirit as well as your body. There is a way out.
