My Regret (a Prayer)
|by Jennifer Hepper
I am sorry for what I did
It was a terrible thing to do
My frustration got the best of me
and I guess the stress did too
I promise I won't ever do
What I did that depressing night
It's just that I was sad
because my family and I had a fight
That fight had pushed me over the limit
and I did not know what to do
If I had really been thinking hard enough
I would have turned to You
If I ever get off that track again
I'll pray that You will help
It gets hard sometimes in the world today
and I often just think of myself
I never thought that what I did
would make other feel that bad
and when I think of what I did now
it really makes me sad
Sad for all the pain I'd caused
and for all of those shed tears
but I will not ever do it again
because I have You to calm my fears
You will calm my fears and everything else
including any strife
I learned that many years ago
when I allowed You in my life
