Why Me Lord?
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.
