    PSALM

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I cry

    When I life

    When I shout

    Forgive me

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I return

    When I hide

    Forgive me

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I lie

    When I’m lied to

    Forgive me

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I deceive

    When I’m deceived

    Forgive me

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I curse

    When I am cursed

    Forgive me

    Forgive me God

    Forgive me

    When I forget

    Your goodness

    When I forget

    Your mercy

    Forgive me

    MATHEMATICAL

    They subtract and subtracted

    They added and added

    Never correctly

    To all the equations

    They gave a value

    For the crossing of the coordinates

    It never came to use

    Either the plus or the minus

    Of the smooth times

    They subtract and subtracted

    They added and added

    And never was the conclusion correct
