Repay For My Past Sins


Dearest Lord, how can I now undo all the damage I had caused on human hearts
Of those who have loved me but their loves cannot be satisfied or fulfilled?
How can I console their souls to make them tranquil?
By soothing words or arms opened widely to comfort?
By singing a love song or by directing her to petition and prayer?
My Love, Spirit of Love, please come to our aid;
Shine your Light and grant enlightenment to assist
Our humble souls which are so distracted with carnal desires and human inclinations
Oh, my Lord, my Love, come to help Thy repentant servant not to condone his past wrongs
But to guide the sorrowful sinner's path to repair, to repay, to sacrifice as ransom.
Show me the ways, which are pure and holy and just in Thy eyes
To make amends for my past sins.

Amen
