Purity I once was young and innocent, A child who knew no lust. Naive, I was, and ignorant, And full of misplaced trust-- For soon the world of hedonists Despoiled my pristine mind... Their self-pollutions and their trysts, Prepared for me to find.Pandora's box invited me, And I, in innocence, Raised up the lid, set demons free, Who've plagued me ever since. If only I could yet redeem That simple purity, I'd pay a treasure worth a dream To be forever free.Yet God has promised a new heart If I give Him my all; I may, if I will do my part, In victory yet stand tall. I'll yield my will to Him today And choose deliberately To do what's right and flee away From all impurity.If with God's help I bring each thought Into captivity, Addictions I have often fought Will fall away from me. Lord, help me then to yield to You Whenever I am pressed; Forgive my past and make me new, And I shall be most blest.
