SCARLET RED

SCARLET RED 
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

All the promises I’ve broken,
All the foolish things I’ve done;
All the sins that I’ve committed,
God has pardoned every one.

Things I’ll do in my tomorrow,
Things I’ll do in my today;
Many things far less than holy,
Yet God loves me anyway.

God will never ever leave me,
And He never will forsake;
What He’s promised to this child,
That’s so laden with mistake.

He is merciful and loving,
He is kindness through and through;
His anger but a moment,
God remaineth ever true.

So I stop and I consider,
What the Lord has done for me;
I’m humbled and I marvel,
At His generosity.

For He took a scarlet sinner,
And He touched a vile hand;
And He holds and tightly grasps it,
Making me to understand:

There is nothing, there is no one,
That can take away or claim;
The inheritance allotted,
And apportioned to my name.

Every sin has been atoned for,
Every secret brought to light;
I am pardoned and forgiven,
Scarlet red …. to holy white.
