God forgive me for the fool I've been today
I just throw that girl you sent to me away
Lord I'll bet you shook your head at those awful things I said
When I let my foolish pride get in the way.

And God forgive me for the man I fail to be
To one who's only sin was loving me
If I've got a right to pray after treating her this way
God forgive me for the fool I've been today.

Lord, I thought I'd die when that tear came in her eye
And that look of disbelief came on her face
What a shame she had to see the ugly side of me
Just when my lonely heart had found it's place.

God forgive me for the fool I've been today
How much love can one man throw away
I hadn't planned on growing old without that sweet and gentle soul
God forgive me for the fool I've been today...
