May God Forgive Me All the Ways I’ve Failed

(Poem by Sophia Shapira)

May God forgive me all the ways I’ve failed.
You’ve guided me, and yet I lost my nerve,
For somehow, it is clear, my faith has ailed.
I know, Your mercy I do not deserve.

Yet I know that Your Son has taught us so
To ask You worthy things, and You will give.
And so I pray, my faith You help it flow
So that my broken heart can once more live.

That I may come to feel it in my heart
That longings You place in me, You’ll fulfill –
That I’ll have courage, thus, to do my part
And live my life according to Your will.

Give me the strength to serve You, oh my Lord –
That with Your saints, I’ll too reap Your reward.
