For All Have Sinned



If we claim
if we claim
claim
to be
to be
without  sin
without sin

without sin
yes, if we claim
to be without sin

 to be without sin,

 we deceive
ourselves
we deceive
ourselves
we deceive
ourselves

and the truth
the truth
the truth

 is not in us.
is not in us
is not us

yes, the truth
is not in us

But if we
confess
 our sins,
yes, if we
 confess
our sins

 he is faithful
and just
he is faithful
and just
and just

 to forgive us
 our sins.
to forgive us
our sins

 and cleans us
yes, cleans us
and cleans
from all
unrighteousness

from all
unrighteousness
yes, and cleans
from all
unrighteousness .
