Complete Forgiveness

O Dear Lord,
You've led me to the quiet place
Where I can almost see your face
A dark and secret closet space

Here I meet you and I see
You'll love me to eternity
I don't feel compelled to be
anyone but just plain me

I come confessing my great sin
And the predicaments I'm in
Life is in a tailspin
Oh what a mess of things I've been

I need your absolution Lord
The price you paid I can't afford
Apart from you I am a loss
Your separating good from dross

Not me you see but look to Christ
The one, the only sacrifice
Amen, Amen I say no more
I close my eyes, swing wide the door

Come in Dear Lord and cover me
Then all my flaws are hid in Thee
