Lead me into the past
Walking down corridors
into the art gallery of memories.
Lead me to yesterday’s pictures
Through portraits of childhood
Into tapestries of home.
Deliver me from heartaches
Increased with difficulties
Limit my iniquities.
Remove from me those scenes that invade
That lead me back into despair
And remind me of my defeat.
Leave me with the triumph of mercy
The joy of forgiveness
The murals that bring pleasure.
Let me dwell within the masterpiece
Immersed in the colours of grace
With every brushstroke painted in love.
