Verse I
I know that I'm not worthy to call upon your name
All my life I've been a sinner and for that I am ashamed
But I heard that you would listen to I'm giving you my plea
I'm too unworthy Lord, to come to you
Could you please come down to me?

Chorus
I know that there are others who could offer more than I
I promise you I'd understand if for me you had no time
I think I've just hit bottom and I'm looking up to see
I'm too unworthy, Lord, to come to you
Could you please come down to me?

Verse II
I guess I must be reaping from the seeds that I have sown
Lord, you owe me nothing, we haven't spoken for so long
If you could spare some mercy I'll pledge my life to thee
I'm too unworthy, Lord, to come to you
Could you please come down to me?

    God is always making the first move,jst like he came down for adam after they had sinned,he comes down for me in the deepest valley of sin.

    Just like john babtist said to the people 'even i am unworthy to untie his shoes'... So just like me, i am so unworthy to ask for him but just for him to love and save me like he always do. I love him always! He's my father and my life. Peace on heart!

    He will never refuse to help me even though i may be in the deepest valley of sin that man can know. All i have to do ask him to come and get me and help me.
