Well, Lord I’ve done it again! I managed to get myself into some kind of trouble and I can’t get out by myself. I’ve fallen into a slimy pit. “I’m in over my head, quicksand under me, swamp water over me; I’m going down for the third time.”TM
I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this mess, Lord. I’m not claiming to be innocent of everything, but I can’t figure out what happened here. “God, you know every sin I’ve committed; My life’s a wide-open book before you.”TM
The harder I try to save myself the deeper I dig the pit and the further from salvation I am. “God, it’s time for a break!… Rescue me from the swamp, don’t let me go under for good, … This whirlpool is sucking me down. Don’t let the swamp be my grave, the Black Hole Swallow me, its jaws clenched around me.”TM
When you save me, and I know you will, I will “shout God’s name with a praising song, Let me tell his greatness in a prayer of thanks.”TM
