Jericho-Like Wall


Jericho-Like Wall

On my knees in front of the altar
Trying to beg for life to be better
I come unclean with a lustful conscience
I must be washed and turn to ways of obedience
I repent of my sins of playing harlotry
At the age of nineteen I fell shamefully
In the crack house I was in fatal fornication
With a snake, a dirty viper, deadly prostitution
My GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT told me to not go
But in pressure, a demonic desire of pleasure I said no
So how can I receive my gifts not being qualified?
Only the blood of CHRIST can now purify
So LORD, I cry to repentance in need to be sanctified
Please I scream in pain with no gain, and now no more hope
In a brutal conclusion I became a lying pope
Cheating myself out of my inheritance
Now in tears I bleed for another chance

Being twenty-one, I’ve learned that HIS grace is sufficient
Awaken to all truth knowing HIS love is beneficent
I have a divine and special call
The need to walk the narrow path is at hand for now I hold the ball
The game is not yet done even though I crawl
Mortal Spiritual warfare is at a vicious brawl
Army of angels at help stomping on Jericho-like wall
With power in praise and worship we break through and fall
I bow down to the almighty CHRIST JESUS GOD of all
I am finished in giving HIM my every all in great awe
Knowing my punishment this war is deeply raw

From deep down I know I am blessed
My heart, soul, and mind declares Christ’s daily prayer in caress
My flesh weakened in desolation of my wicked distress
I say sorry emotionally down with a frown in benevolent stress
The worry, the chains, but victory on Calvary, I am forgiven, I guess
I shine in darkness in a confusing fortress battling a demonic mistress
My fight is over, I lost to wisdom, and GOD is in me as I am now bliss
My sin is forgotten, public repentance of sinfulness sin that I am forced to confess

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
