LYRICS

I love you Lord,
and I still don’t understand why I betray you, Lord
Is it part of someone’s plan for me to be this child
Who runs away even when I know it’s best to stay

I need you, Lord
And I’m reaching out my hand for you to save me, Lord
Please take me back again.
I’ll try to stay this time,
I pray this time,
I won’t stray this time

MIDDLE EIGHT:
‘Cause when I’m close to you
I’m where I should be
Each day giving praise to you
I know there is no better place
to live than in your grace

But still I leave you, Lord
And go walking my own way, I don’t deserve you, Lord
So for these three things I pray
The time to know you Lord
the strength to serve you, Lord
The will to stay here, Lord
