Why Me Lord?

Why me

 

Why me Lord? What did I ever do

To deserve to be chosen by someone so wonderful as you?

I was only a plain ordinary man,

But still you picked me to be a part of your plan.

I don't understand why I have been called

To a new way of life with you as my Lord.

I guess you saw something in me, what I don't know.

You blessed me so richly, your love truly does overflow.

The Christian path I now walk along

Is true and right. I feel I belong.

I know I'm a sinner, though I try to do right,

But I can't do it alone; I need your guidance and light.

I want to be more like you Jesus, each night and each day, 

And if I should stumble, you'll always be there to help me find the right way.

Sinful lures may try to tempt me, but I don't have to give in,

Because you chose me for life eternal, to great joy free from sin.

It's not always easy, but with you to lend your strong hand,

I feel peace and thankfulness to now be a God loving man.

Why me Lord? I only know that you love me so well,

That as a part of your kingdom, I will now always dwell.
