Why Me Lord?

Words and Music by Kris Kristofferson

 Psalm 51:3
"For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me."

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.

Chorus
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.

Tell 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.

Chorus
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.
