The world does not have a rug so big
To cover up your sin.
Nor does it hold a brush so large
To sweep it in the bin.
On earth no landfill can contain
Such sin contamination.
To cover, hide or stuff it down
Proves quite a consternation.
With what or whom should we compare
The sin we have in view?
Who is really wise enough
To tell you what is true?
I feel the bible’s truth can tell
You more about this woe.
It tells of many types of sin
And how to beat this foe.
It tells us of a God of mercy
Who sent His beloved son,
Into this world of darkest sin
It’s power to kill undone.
A sacrificial death he died
That was why He was sent.
He laid down His life to take
Your heavy punishment.
Now you won’t need to brush your sins
Under some old rug.
Now you’ve no need to try to hide them
From the Holy God above.
He can see them all whatever you do
Worldly ploys are all in vain.
Jesus Christ is the only way
To take away your pain.
Your pain of anguished sleepless nights
Of wishing sins undone.
The eternal mess can be turned around
But only with God’s son.
He says to all who’re heavy burdened,
“Come to me, I’ll give you rest.”
He says to all the sinful men,
“Repent and then be blessed.”
Blessed with His pardon freely given
For sins you have committed.
He’ll wash your soul as white as snow,
And then you’ll be acquitted.
