Forgiven

I stand before Him forgiven!
His blood has made me clean;
But at times in daily living
A cloud comes in between:
And fellowship is broken,
Communion sweet no more —
Oh! How to restore the sweetness
Enjoyed the day before.
In His presence I seek forgiveness,
I own my fault with shame;
Long before by blood it was covered
When I first confessed His name;
But the joy that follows confession!
Freedom again to look up;
To open the door to His knocking
And invite Him in to sup.
