A Clean Slate

September 20, 2013

Painful past

Mistakes made

Can’t change

The path was laid

 

Ironclad grip

Pulling down

Crying out

In tears drowned

 

Spinning round

A sinking ship

Life’s a mess

Can’t get a grip

 

What if there

Was really a way

A gift for you

A completely clean slate

 

If you can get past

Prejudices made

Open your mind

The price was paid

 

Forget religion

Not what it’s about

Embrace the Truth

That will let you cry out

 

Forget the steeple

The Easter parade

Jesus is deep

It’s no charade

 

The blood He shed

Is no laughing matter

Such a shame He’s been treated

With a light hearted manner

 

Love so deep

Heart so good

He gave it for you

He shed His own blood

 

So you could have

Another chance

Get free from your past

Set free to dance

 

Dance a new life

Leave the old behind

Take hold of His hand

He will take off the blinds

 

That’s right it’s a kick

Jesus is the Way

You’ve heard it all along

Thought it was a cliche’

 

Don’t need to be religious

To talk to the One

That loves you so much

Had me write this sweet poem

 

So guess what precious one?

He’s waiting on you

To give a clean slate

Start your life brand new
