A New Broom Sweeps Clean

Lord there is so much we have got wrong

Things we have seen and wanted – and chased after,

bad choices we have made,

things that would have been better not done or said,

words and actions we should have done

but didn’t.

They pile up, and make an ugly mess.

But you are the one who can put things right,

You are the one who can restore us

change us

give us your strength and power.

We confess what we have got wrong.

We bring it to you.

Sweep through us we pray

cleanse us,

dust us down.

Remake us

in your image
