Ecclesiastes Of A Youth: Part 2


Surely I’m sinful since I was born,
Vile from the very time of mybirth
From that time, I’ve missed the *mark of God,
Have fallen short of His righteousness!

So again I spoke to the Father,

“Curse ev’rything that my heart’s proud of
. if it cannot please You, O Father!
Let all my knowledge from me be off
. if they cannot please You, O Father!
Curse all my success to be worthless

Let all my pride became shame to me
. if I can’t make You smile, O Father!
