Poem: “Praise Christ our Purifier”

Praise Christ our Purifier

Who filters the spite from our souls
and decontaminates our spirits,

Who cleanses us from all dross
and removes anything ill or gross
from our memories and old ways
of doing things. Christ we praise

for bathing us with His Blood
on His cross of wood, cleansing us
from sin, and forgiving us for good.
