1. Because I knew not when my life was good,
and when there was a light upon my path
but turned my soul perversely to the dark, O Lord, I do repent.
2. Because I held upon my selfish road,
and left my brother wounded by the way
and called ambition duty, and pressed on, O Lord, I do repent.
3. Because I spent the strength Thou gavest me
in struggle which Thou never didst ordain
and have imperfect life to offer Thee, O Lord, I do repent.
4. Because I was impatient, would not wait,
and thrust my willful hand across Thy threads
and marred the pattern drawn out for my life, O Lord, I do repent.
