Sin is a Sharp Stick

Sin is a sharp stick
We poke God in the eye with.
Continuing to sin
Is going for the other eye.

Repentance is a bone
Breaking deep inside
When we sin;
The jagged part
Stabs us in the heart
And we don't want to do it again.

It is not enough
To tear our clothes to shreds;
Truth is knowing
We rip our own hearts
When we sin.

All He asks,
Thanks be to Him,
Is that we turn,
In all our sin,
And lay our brokenness
At His feet.

Joel 2:12-14
Psalms 34:18, 51:17
