Lyrics

What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I’ve known
What did I ever do
That was worth loving you
And the kindness you’ve shown.
Lord, help me Jesus,
I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am
Now that I know
That I’ve needed you
So help me Jesus,
My soul’s in your hand.
Tell me Lord,
If you think there’s a way
I can try to repay
All I’ve taken from you
Maybe Lord,
I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you.
Lord, help me Jesus,
I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am.
Now that I know
That I’ve needed you
So help me Jesus,
My soul’s in your hand.
Lord, help me Jesus,
I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am
Now that I know
That I’ve need you
So help me Jesus,
My soul’s in your hand.
My soul’s in your hand…
