Vindicated Within: Inspired by Psalms 51
2/15/2021

My merciful God, on account of your grace, lovingness, and
compassion wash away my sinful deed. 
Bathe me in holy water, and let your righteousness make me
clean,
I understand and confess to you my wrongdoings, 
and they shall be with me the rest of my days. 
Against you, and only you, I have sinned, and brought this
wickedness before your face;
Therefore, I will honor and take heed to your blameless judgment
against my case. 
Father God, consider my birth that in which, wedlock my mother
conceived me. Behold;
Still, you desire truth in my manly parts. 
Then, in my heart you can redeem me, so then bathe me in the
white roses and I will be as white as their petals. 
Baptize me in your holy water and remove my every blemish, 
let the sweetest joy of my life be the reflection of your
forgiveness.
Remove your face from my wickedness, and forgive all my
transgressions. 
And Father God, restore my burdensome heart, bless my spirit to
withstand. 
Do not disown me Father God, nor take away your loving hand. 
Bring me back into your salvation, and let my strength be
abundant. 
Then, I will testify to your gracious ways, so at-risk-youth can
learn your instructions. 
Unburden my heart, from the guilt of my bloody hands,
You are the god of my salvation and peace. 
And I will uplift your mighty name, for all mankind to see. 
Since material things you desire not, I give you my soul in
sacrifice. 
Though condemned and convicted by this world, 
true vindication awaits in afterlife.
