Hiding in Plain Sight
The Subtle Deception of Sin

by Jasmin Howell

CLEANSE ME FROM SECRET FAULTS.Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me.  Then I shall be blameless, and I shall be innocent of great transgression.  Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight,  O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.
