WHY ME LORD
Writer Kris Kristofferson

Why me Lord? What have I ever done, to deserve even one, of the pleasures I've known? Tell me Lord. What did I ever do, that was worth loving you,
Or the kindness you've shown?
Lord, help me, Jesus. I've wasted it, so Help me Jesus, I know what I am. Now that I know that I've needed you, so help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.
Try me Lord, if you think there's a way, I can try to repay, all I've taken from you. Maybe Lord, I can show someone else, what I've been through myself, on my way back to you.
Lord help me Jesus, I've wasted it, so Help me Jesus, I know what I am; but, now that I know, that I've needed you, so Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.
Lord help me Jesus, I've wasted it, so Help me Jesus, I know what I am; but, now that I know, that I've needed you, so Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.
Jesus, my soul's in your hand.
