Verse 1
May the works I've done speak for me.
May the works (I've done) speak for me.
When I'm resting in my grave,
There's nothing more to be said;
May the works (the works I've done)
Let it speak for me, (for me).

Verse 2
May the life I live speak for me.
May the life (I live) speak for me.
When I'm resting in my grave,
There's nothing more to be said;
May the life (the life I live)
Let it speak for me, (for me).

The works I've done,
Sometimes it seems so small,
It seems like I've done nothing at all.
Lord I'm (leaning) and depending on You,
If I do right You're gonna see me through;
May the works (the works I've done),
Let it speak for me (for me).

Speak for me,
Speak for me

    These lyrics are not correct. There are THREE verses, and verse 2 and 3 does NOT say the same thing after the first two lines. PLEASE LISTEN to the song and correct them. Thank you.
