** A TRUE CONFESSION!
A TRUE CONFESSION!
‘This world is never the same dear Lord,
Which you had created in just seven days;
I am one of your many sinful slaves,
Confessing to wash my sins away!
In my young days I never visited your
house of prayers,
Nor did I keep fast on Sabbath Days!
A conceited life I had generally led, -
Losing Your thoughts and going astray!
This world has not remained the same dear
Which You had created in just seven days!
People only think about their pleasures,
Material culture has taken its sway!
Money and sex are like two poles,
On which this world revolves these days!
Only if you intervene dear Lord,
Your erring slaves may yet amend their
Pardon me for my confessions dear Lord,
I fear Your angels don’t inform you these
This world has become very volatile, -
Which you had created in just seven days!
Terrorism now has spread out its wings,
And killing has become a recreational
Humanity has become a forgotten thing,
And people forget to take Your name!
The world is not the same O Lord, -
Which you had created in only seven days!
But your slaves still fear you thunderbolts, -
And only in pain and suffering remember
So accept my humble prayers dear Lord,
And this true confession I now make;
Do not wipe away all our tears dear Lord,
Only then we shall remember to take
Your name! ’
