I was so self sufficient
Somehow I never felt whole
As I faced temtation
The Devil he came for my soul
He could see my every weakness
And whispered "No one will know"
You see sin always takes me
Much farther than I want to go

So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Don't know where to begin
I guess one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again

As I'm in situations
You test and I come undone
It weighs almost nothing
So why can't I hold my tongue
For some life's a journey
For me it's one bumpy ride
And I can't settle my conflicts out there
Till I find peace inside

Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Don't know where to begin
I guess one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
Don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again

There is life and death in our words
But we don't realize
The harm that is done to another
When we criticize

So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
I'm down on my knees dear God
Forgive me this sin
Just one bad choice can lead
To the trouble I'm in
So don't give up on me dear God
I failed You again
Nailed to a tree
I finally see
You don't give up on me

2008-07-22I must admit that sometimes, I feel so discrete to our Lord Jesus Christ leading to feeling guilty about it. I'm so sorry Lord God..I would like to thank the songwriter of this song. For making me realize that there's really SOMEBODY ABOVE who is really watching over us and for making us feel that we are secured enough with HIM. Praise the LORD!
