Ecclesiastes Of A Youth: Part 1


(written in 2010)
I:

With this life, am I pleasing the Lord?
Is this life sincerely praising Him?
Is this life speaking of His accord
And says great things 'bout Elohim?

God showed my short comings so I said,

'O our Father, I'm singing in vain
And my worship sings not with my life!
I have failed You - again and again -
and have broken my vows in Your fief! '

Though I may've become intelligent,
I am still nothing *before the Lord!
I may say my wisdom's sufficient
But I'm still foolish *before the Lord!

I am nothing! I am meaningless!
A servant so unfaithful and weak!
Why make fools with life if this will end,
Laugh at my follies when they will be judged?

Knowing these, again I spoke to God,

'O God, I'm unworthy of your grace!
Why bless this sinful servant of Yours?
My heart is unclean to give You praise!
Why do You embrace this child of curse? '

'My heart is grieved for it can't please You,
Broken knowing that I'm unworthy!
I'm downcast for I've sinned against You,
Depressed for not giving You glory! '

' O Lord, to You I am so ashamed
For sinning against You many times!
I'm so shameful of bearing Your name
For committing many vicious crimes! '

***
*or 'before Yahweh'
