Dear Sin:

I had to let you go

Your desires cost me more than I could ever know

Yet you still call to me with a whisper in the ear

Every corner that I turn I feel you oh so near

My mind habitually worked against me when it relished in your touch

Your scent drove me wild, your gaze made me smile, you became to me a crutch

You held me in your bosom and softly spoke of what could be

You gave me the grandest of thoughts, of visions of clarity

My heart raced and it pranced with a joy that seemed unfailing

Blinded to the pain that came with you- the debt that would be trailing

Yet as the sun repelled on the hottest of days

My Lord showed me your intentions and the doom of your ways

You lied to me about pain, you said there’d be none

For a moment I felt alive and in a twinkle it was gone

You made me bitter and tore my heart into pieces

And then you lied again, soft words and the pain releases

I turned from my Lord because you called to my desire

But when I came to your beckoning, I saw you standing with the liar

But my Lord full of mercy followed me to your indwelling

And while you made a mockery of me, and beat me with your yelling

He snatched me from your grasp as you lay the barrage of whips

And took the consign of my penalty as He lay upon the sticks

And so you killed him with a fervor and tenacity meant solely for the hated

you poured out your wickedness on Him, you stood there and you waited

You mused and you glistened at your triumph with delight

You knew He was the King of Glory, You knew He was the light

And all the little words you sang to me oh how it was sublime

Melted away my heart’s contentment for the one you killed was mine

As sorrow replaced my joy, what now of its significance

I see truly what you used me for, exacting out his vengeance

Your father was a liar and that from the beginning

You failed to see my God arise for His desire made the ending

You failed to see His zeal of hatred I know HE has for you

The God of glory, the bright and morning, declared what He would do

And that’s to take what is His, the Father’s calling to shame you into hell

Where you’ll scream and cry, whilst you beg and wry in the place that you befell

He has saved me now, from sin and death and given life abundantly

The Alpha and Omega, I AM that I AM, the Light of Majesty

Faithful and True, the King of Kings, His name is El Shaddai,

Blessed Redeemer, Jesus the Savior, The Lord God Adonai!
