“Fess Up”


1 John 1:8-9
New Living Translation (NLT)

8 If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

Confessing Your Love

Must I confess my every flaw
And broadcast it to the world
Must everyone know just what I’ve done
Like some tattered flag unfurled

Must I scream out loud and pound my chest
And tear my robe while pleading on my knees
If I walked barefoot and backwards through a fire
Would that be something that would appease

I find that when the world feels wronged
There’s really no way to make amends
The gavel slams down in judgment quickly
And the punishment descends

That’s why I love You so, I guess
Why Your mercy moves me so
The world would cast me off with ease
Yet You have never let me go

Even when I’ve turned and run away
Even when I cursed Your very name
With open arms You’ve always waited
And loved me just the same
