Create In Me A Clean Heart

Staring Into the Face of Youth

Sweet face of youth, I envy thee
Child who sits upon my knee
Untouched by pride or arrogance
No evils now can thee entrance.  

Innocence of a child so fair
With radiant face and curly hair
That halos cheeks of rosy pink....
Makes a sinner stop and think.

A child who once was pure and shy
And honest, such a child was I
Too rapidly sweet youth has fled
And brought about a change instead

And when I gaze into clear eyes
Of youth as it should be
With sad regret I realize
That dear child once was me.  

But  ...  youth I never can re-live
What else can I do then?
But pray to God He may forgive
And make me as a child again.
