A SONG OF SALVATION, by            
First Line: He has buried my burden of failures so deep they will
Last Line: Heaven.
Subject(s): Salvation

HE has buried my burden of failures so deep they will rise again never,
They rest in oblivion's ocean, the sea of forgotten forever,

To Him will I raise the voice of my praise — Oh, well does He merit

Would still remain sunk in the darkness, the cloak of my sinning and sorrow,
He came to me out of the starlight, when my soul was too wretched for sleeping,
And hearing my moan He made me His own, and now I am safe in His keeping.

So swift was His word of redemption, my soul is still trembling in wonder;

He has made me a child of His own, I am one with the host of Forgiven;
And here upon earth, though meagre my worth, I am tasting the joys of His
