By Ygor Noblott

O Lord, how I thank thee
To have thy love so close to me.

To be forgiven, to be redeemed
To be able to head upstream.

Lord, I’ll work hard, I’ll do my best
I’ll keep thy commandments, I’ll have no rest.

I’ll come to forgive, I’ll come to forget
The sins of my brethren, and all of their debt.

But two more things that have to get done,
Fasting and prayer can’t go undone.

So Lord I’ll ask thee one more thing,
That thy spirit may fill my soul,
So this repentance can be made whole.
