When Godly Sorrow Moves the Soul


When Godly Sorrow Moves the Soul

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

When godly sorrow moves the soul to lay on Christ a debt of pride,

The arms of love are reaching out, wherein the wounded heart may hide.

A voice of mildness pricks the heart when law and conscience are betrayed;

To make amends we do our part, yet must rely on Jesus’ aid.

He paid our debts and felt our pain from others’ choices and our own,

That we might be made whole again and know His presence as our home.

The voices of these latter days entice the noble and the great;

Yet ev’ry blessing comes to those who walk the path, though steep and strait.
