Shame by Fernando Ortega

Fernando Ortega is one of my favorite singers. His music is usually calming, though sometimes a little upbeat. The album that this particular song came off of is named Fernando Ortega and has a lot of his original songs in it. I was listening to this song today and it just sort of touched me. Even though we've made lots of mistakes, we know God won't judge us by those if we are truly sorry for them. Anyway, I hope y'all will get some meaning out of these lyrics.



Though I am weak
Sometimes weary
In times of trial
I hide my face
In the balance
Judge me wholly
Please don't judge me
By my shame

In dark hours
Of confrontation
When words may fall
Too soon to unsay
Don't mistake them
For my true meaning
They are measures
Of my shame

(chorus)
I have tried
To live life humbly
Not a coward
Not in vain
When my meekness
Overcomes me
Remember me
Not my shame
Not my shame

I am small
And self-conscious
Every mirror
Reflects the grain
Judge my essence
By my kinships
Remember me
Not my shame

I am weak
Sometimes weary
Sometimes small
I hide away
When my hours
Are all accounted
Please don't bind me
To my shame

I have tried
To live life humbly
Not a coward
Not in vain
When my meekness
Overcomes me
Remember me
Not my shame
Not my shame

I want to listen to it as well, Anna : )
Fernando Ortega never "misses" speaking his deep heart feelings. May we all be so transparent as we all grow together in union with our Lord and with each other in Him.

Love, Anna's Mom
