If you want to set your heart right,
Then pray and confess to the Lord;
Showing regret within His sight,
And the Lord will not be ignored.
If you are holding on to sin,
Then put it very far away;
Let not injustice taint within,
That would cause you to go astray.
Then you can be showing your face,
Without feeling being ashamed;
Rather secure without disgrace,
Unafraid of not being blamed.
The you forget your misery,
Remembering it flows downstream;
Considered to be history,
For being rather as a dream.
Then your life will be much brighter,
Than at the time of the noon sun;
Your burdens will feel much lighter,
As dawn of the day has begun.
The dark that has been in your life,
Will becoming like the morning;
Dissipating burdens and strife,
What was cold is gentling warming.
You will feel confident for hope,
As you look around you can rest;
No longer will I have to cope,
Knowing through God I have been blest.
You will lie down your mind at ease,
Because nobody will frighten you;
Abide in the Lord as to please,
And in His Word remaining true.
Many people will try to gain,
Your favor to be within your eyes;
But they will only induce pain,
Working for Satan in disguise.
But the wicked will lose eyesight,
As their escape route will be blocked;
Their only hope will not be bright,
As their last breath where vultures flocked.
