THE HANDS OF TIME

If only i could turn back the
hands of time. Then what i’ve
done would be rewind. Guilt wouldn’t
stalk me in my mind. Pain wouldn’t
creep up and down my spine.

If only time would be so kind.
Let me turn back the hands
of time. Then what I’ve done
would be rewind. Lord show
mercy for my terrible crime.

Through your unfailing love,
give me peace of mind.
My heart trembles at the
thought of your wrath, which
is why i choose a better path.

Please forgive me for my
foolish choices. When i think
of you, my heart rejoices.
Knowing how kind and
forgiving you are, makes

me look ahead, but not to far.
For we must look back at the
past sometimes, or we’ll turn
into beasts at the drop of a dime.
We must know right from wrong,

and learn from our mistakes.
Then deep inside, our true
essence awakes. Don’t take
a dangerous path twice, or
next time your fortune may

not be so nice. We must stop
all the drama and commotion.
A better you takes devotion.
Say “I could turn back the hands
of time. What i’ve done could

be rewind. Wrongdoing is
conceived in the mind.
I won’t give birth to a terrible
crime. I control this body
of mine. I could look forward

to peaceful days, by making a
choice to walk God’s righteous
ways.” Choosing wickedly is
choosing wrong. You can be weak,
or you can be strong. You decide

where you belong. You have
time to change your mind! Think
ahead then press rewind! Oh how
time has been so kind.
Then we have changed,
the Hands Of Time!
