Sin Runs Deep

Sin runs deep within these veins

the stains are crimson red

the failures rush like ocean waves

as I fight to keep ahead

of the doubts and fears, that plague my heart

can anyone save me now

or will I just slowly drift away

my thoughts go on unsaid

My scarlet gown

weighs me down

as I wade through sin so deep

I’m crying out from a broken heart

Lord, my soul, is yours to keep

Take this burden from me Lord

may your ways I forever seek

Sin has no place within these veins

my gown is white as snow

Redemption washes over me

and makes my soul anew

I would not be who I am today

If it were not for you
