Lapsed

Pull me from the sea of sin, in which I drown

dry me off and press me to learn

what Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote down.

 

Dress me up in a clean white gown

tell me of the luck I earn

as you pulled me from the sea of sin in which I drown.

 

Teach me about His great renown,

and attempt to make me discern

what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote down.

 

Punish me when I deny His crown

and warn me of my sorry return

to the sea of sin, in which I drown.

 

Forget me when I leave this town

in the same way I lost concern

for what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote down.

 

Do not pray for me when I’m no longer around,

Do not continue to yearn

to pull me from the sea of sin, in which I drown.

I have forgotten what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John wrote down.
