Helpless

Helpless we to save ourselves from a fate
A million times worse than death, this weight
Of sin and crushing guilt and burning shame —
Heavy this burden on this mortal frame.

Hear, O God, this hard confession we make,
Where all our false foundations tremble and shake —
In our distress, deliver us from our chains,
Hands surrendering hearts and hurts and reins.
