    "Sins", not "sings". Check the dictionary.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Maybe someone's a bad singer and he wants "Atone for your songs!", or "Atone for your singing!".

    I'm sorry it was a typo. I meant "sins". So "atone for your sins" is correct?

    It's correct, but pretty uncommon outside religious language.

    These are hands, not a hangman's knot. You used ribald language. Atone for your sins.”
    I'm not sure I like the way this is going. Do you plan to use these any time soon?
