Keep back thy Servant from
Presumptuous Sins
(Ps.19:13)
When the Lion backslides
it often costs the lamb
just ask trusting old  Uriah
about the sins of man.
_______________________
the black sin of presumption
can fester spread and grow
and lead one to consumption
and bring those high down low.
_______________________

cause havoc and much heartache
suffering, sorrow, shame
when straight and narrow men forsake
and dishonor God’s Good Name.
_______________________

So Saints beware the claiming
what some call “Divine Right of Kings”
and by boasting thus defaming
the Sonship that faith brings.
_______________________

Perhaps this prayer was prayed too late
after sin gave birth to sin
failing to see the trap and bait
singing later, What might have been
________________________

Why would a bird break its own wings
or a sinning Saint  his message mar
while God may fix its broken things
it never flew as fast or far - id
