Jesus I need a carpenter like you


Jesus I have sinned
I need a carpenter like you!
I’m riddled with woodworm
Through and through
My heart and soul needs a little glue.

Lord what, am I to do.
Like sea wood I’ve travelled
Rolling along in every dip and furrow
With nowhere! Really, to belong...

Jesus I have sinned
I need a carpenter like you!
To dove joint me to you
Lord what, am I to do.
I’ve worn out my cement shoes
But I never quite found
A river quiet deep enough to drown.

Lord what, am I to do.
Like sea wood I’ve travelled
Rolling along in every dip and furrow
With nowhere! Really, to belong...

Lord I have begged you to take me home
Lord I’m riddled with woodworm
Through and through
Lord like a child’s broken wooden toy,
My heart and soul needs a little glue.

Jesus I have sinned
I need a carpenter like you!

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
