Falling Short

From Isaiah 1:4:  “Woe, sinful nation, people laden with iniquity, offspring who do evil, children who act corruptly, who have forsaken the Lord, who have despised the Holy One of Israel, who are utterly estranged!”

Rebels and sinners

Destroying mankind

Forsaking our Lord

Always running blind


Evil filled with sin

Facing God’s high court

Shamming His guidance

Always falling short


His wrath pouring out

Avenging life’s foes

Consuming darkness

Always Father knows


Zion falls empty

Trampling God no more

Heeding to listen

Always grace to pour


Savior born on earth

Wielding Gospel’s might

Sharing His mercy

Always Christ’s daylight

From Isaiah 1:18:  “Come now, let us argue it out, says the LordIf your sins are like scarlet, will they become like snow?  If they are red like crimson, will they become like wool?”
