Why I sin

God, I sin
When I lack.
When this world is not enough
And you don’t come to give me
what I am left wanting too much,
I sin.

In that hour of need and longing
I don’t know how to cope-
I just don’t know how.
I just don’t know how.
And I have only taught myself
Over and over, instead,
To sin.

To sin
Instead of trusting You
and being content
to be want.
