black as sin


my soul was black as black as sin

my mind was wild and full of din

my feelings mad as mad can be

and truth or light i could not see


my life brought me the meanest curse

and things did go from bad to worse

a life away and far from God

that ends once six feet under sod


my heart was ugly like the night

i tried to live with all my might

but all was void to no avail

my best attempts were sure to fail


o Lord have mercy on my soul

for idle vain so is my goal

yes make me humble make me meek

so sober You alone i'll seek



Christophoreus Abbani
