What I Have Done (Version II)

What I Have Done (Version II)

Verse 1
I've gone and sinned, my Lord
It's kept me up all night long
It happened in a moment of weakness
I considered myself stronger than this
When I tried to run away
My demons convinced me to stay
Entangled in the arms of shame
I can barely find the words to pray

Chorus
Is it possible to arise when all is lost?
How can I even dare to claim the cross?
I have done what You so abhor
Sin was tantalizing, and I craved more
But I have gone too far, and I know that none
Can possibly erase what I have done

Verse 2
I trained myself in what to say
But I fell when destruction came
Drinking from the cup of destruction
Grasping for the devil's seduction
Now, possessed by torment, I grope
For a second chance, for I can't cope
In my blindness, my soul I killed
Now I remain in this torturous guilt

Chorus
Is it possible to arise when all is lost?
How can I even dare to claim the cross?
I have done what You so abhor
Sin was tantalizing, and I craved more
But I have gone too far, and I know that none
Can possibly erase what I have done

Bridge/Ending
And then, O God, You meet my eyes
I cower in shame, overcome by lies
You reach forward with Your nail-scarred hands
And weep, "My Child, I understand! 
You think I can't restore those who have lost
But tell Me, if I can't, what's the purpose of the cross?
Your every sin on the cross I bore
So I can lift you up, restored
I fought the devil for you, my son [[or daughter, ha]]
You think it's over, but I just won
Forgiveness, I will lavish on you - if you let Me do so
I VOW, MY CHILD, I WILL NEVER LET YOU GO
I died for you, and you must know that none
CAN POSSIBLY ERASE WHAT I HAVE DONE!" 

The End
