Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek your name, O LORD. 

Psalm 83:16

In Your judgment

may hearts turn to You

and may mercy

grant repentance to

sinful people needing grace

Let justice flow

throughout the land

may sin be vanquished

by Your hand

so we'll seek Your face

Guilt for sin and

shame for our disgrace

would be good things if

they turned us to Your face

forgiving and creating life anew

Sometimes hard judgment

must turn us to The Lord

difficult times will teach us

to follow His Word

so we do what God wants us to do

May we know humility

and let us feel shame

to lead to holiness

and the knowledge of Your name

Our hope is in You, Lord

A people stubborn

in sinful ways

will be found troubled, stumbling,

dying all their days

until revived by Spirit's Word
