The days of life have stained my soul with flaws
that buried deep the light I used to shine.
Those flaws kept me below within their claws,
beyond the light of life that once was mine.
You found me there and looked on me with tears
that one so loved as me should fall so far.
I raised my gaze and saw beyond my fears
that I had been destroyed by guilt's deep scar.
For you showed me those faults aren't who I am;
mistakes I've made won't dictate who I'll be.
And now at last I'm letting go of them;
that shame was drowned within your love for me.
   O happy death, to die inside of you,
   whose gracious love revives my light anew.
