(Now Lord what can I do for you)
[ Nat ]
In a land where there's freedom to worship
It was there that beauty creates that I should be born
You gave me the breath of life and let me see the light of dawn
And you gave me a father and a mother
Who have stood in the breach for me through all of my shortcomings
You did this when you might have turned away from the hard store
To cause your spirit to strife no more
[ Both ]
Now Lord what can I do for you
[ Nat ]
Through the weary swift years of childhood till I was a man I rejected your call
Knowing that you gave your only begotten son to plea
At to die on the cross at calvary that I might have eternal life
And since that day long ago when with tender mercy you saved my soul
I've never called out your name except when I was in trouble sorrow and pain
Yet you have showered me with blessings even though I drifted away and grew cold
[ Both ]
Now Lord what can I do for you
[ Nat ]
It's true I've been wild pleasured that I'm willing to surrender all
And now my life is mostly spent yet tonight you restored my soul
You gave me a loving wife and the family of my own
And I brought them shame my sins have caused them grief and pain I'm told
But they loved and believed in me when I know to them it seemed in vain
Yes you are a mercyful God to take me back again
[ Both ]
Now Lord what can I do for you
