Tear out this heart. This rancid and rotting flesh. Destroy me until only an empty carcass remains. Rescue me from my evil. Have pity and mercy on this wretch. Please overlook my stench as my sin will surely make you vomit. Have pity on me and release me from my prison. Surely it is better to die, to be crucified in all of its pain than to live in the grips of the weakness of my sinful flesh. I cannot stand to live in this glory stealing, worship seeking soul any longer. The truth of who I am is too great to bear alone. Rescue me.
Falling, Prostate and repentant and ashamed
Living, Forgiven and redeemed and loved
