Ray Charles – So Help Me God lyrics

So Help Me God
By Ray Charles

I am lost, I've been led astray
Once again I need Your light and love to lead the way
I know I don't deserve it, but I promise it's the end
So if You rescue me just one more time
You'll never have to do it again

So help me God
So help me God
Help me... God
Help me God
Help me God

It's the truth, I can't tell You a lie
You're the only one who's been there for me each and every time
Now I guess it's my turn to prove myself to You
Go ahead, ask me anything at all
And that's what I am going to do

So help me God (help me God)
Help me God (please help me)
Help me... God (God! )
I cross my heart (help me... God)
Help me God, oh yeah (ooh...)

You've been so understanding and patient with me
It's took me some time, but now I see (but now I see)
It took me some time, but now I see...

I am awake, now I have been found
You can count on me forever more
I'm never gonna' let You down

So help me God (help me God)
Yes please, God (please help me)
Help me... (God! ) God
Yes... (whoa! )
Whoa... help me!
(Help me God! Help me God! )

I won't let you down... (oh no! )
Please (help me) help me God
(Help me God! Help me...)
Help me God... My Lord.
