Stains too Deep

“Stains too Deep” 12.19.06

Took a walk today
Saw all there was to see
Nothin’ really—no, nothin’ at all

They say the streets are paved with gold
But somehow I saw it wasn’t so
Took a few steps in the direction of hope

But I kept on slippin’
I kept on slidin’
I kept on fallin’ in the mud

Stopped along the way
Lost a shoe
Fell off the track
Couldn’t find my way back

You said, “Be clean.”
You said, “Be pure.”

But I kept on slippin’
I kept on slidin’
I kept on fallin’ in the mud

I ended up with stains
Too deep to clean
Bruises and wounds
Bruises and wounds

In the distance I saw Your face
Your light blinding and ever-shining
Your glory touched all creation
The flower bud bloomed
And spoke your name

And that’s when I knew
I fell to my knees
The tears rolled down
A puddle on the floor

And that’s when I knew
The tear told me so
As it trickled down my face
Landed right before my feet

I couldn’t do it on my own
I needed you to carry,
To carry me through
Jesus, yes sir, I need you

Because I keep on slippin’
I keep on slidin’
I keep on fallin’ in the mud

So He took me by the hand
And carried me home
