God Forgive Me

from by gospel lee

about

A dialogue between me and God about how much I suck and how much His love covers all of my failures, flaws, and faults.

lyrics

God forgive me the person I am it's not who I wanna be/two very different people so much that it is hard to see/the overtaking of the latter upon the former/when it happens one day I'll be a modern day reformer/Ima modern day conformer on the roster suited up/but not makin' plays like a modern day bench warmer/I'm like the scarecrow no brain in desperate need of a donor/'cuz I can't figure out this odyssey like I was Homer/God forgive me I'm in a coma/need the aroma/of your love to kill this sin-cancer like chemo to a melanoma/am I alone or are you really as close as they say/in the scriptures you're one call away/and it also say that you be stickin' closer than a brother/what if I ain't got no brother/how am I supposed to discover/the truth thats so apparent but they've made it undercover/that you're my greatest lover/and you've loved me like no other/God forgive me because I know I'm stressin' you out/believe the message of the cross and still I struggle with doubt/and the complacency know its killin' you 'cuz its killin' me/graspin for breath blind though I can clearly see/God forgive me 'cuz I've got all the time in the world/but when it comes to time for you I've got more time for my girl/got more time for Facebook more time for MTV/got more time to grab that high score on my 360/God forgive me these hands I've used to glorify your name/and they hands I use to slap you in the face are the same/these hands I fold when I pray to lift when I praise you/are the very same hands that stab your back and betray you/God forgive me honestly you should love somebody else/been abused and rejected I don't even love myself/see these scars on my wrist they're so I can feel alive/because there's not much left and I'm still tryin' to survive/

God forgive me
do you forgive me
could you forgive me
would you forgive me

I FORGIVE YOU 'CUZ MY LOVE YOU COULD NEVER COMPREHEND/IT'S DEEPER THAN DEPTH HAS NO ORIGIN OR END/IT'S HOW ALMIGHTY GOD CALLS MANKIND FRIEND/IT'S WHY I LET MY SON DIE/ITS WHY HE CAME BACK AGAIN/ITS HOW RED BLOOD SHED MAKES YOU WHITER THAN SNOW/DON'T SEE JUST WHERE YOU'RE AT BUT ALL WHERE YOU COULD GO/DON'T SEE JUST HOW YOU ARE BUT SEES WHO YOU COULD BECOME/A MOON IN THIS DARK TO REFLECT THE LIGHT OF MY SON/AND YOUR DOUBT AND UNBELIEF YOU CAN HAND IT ALL OVER/NEVER STOOD A MATCH AGAINST THE LOVE OF JEHOVAH/NEVER STOOD A CHANCE LIKE ONE VERSUS THREE/WAS MY LOVE GRACE AND PATIENCE VERSUS YOUR COMPLACENCY/I CAN MAKE YOU BRAND NEW YOU BAD COULD NEVER BE BAD ENOUGH/MY LOVE RESTORES ALL SOB STORY ISN'T SAD ENOUGH/YOU DID IT ALL RIGHT HOW COULD GRACE FIT THE EQUATION/IF YOU HAD YOUR GOLD STARS WHY WOULD YOU EVER NEED SALVATION/YOU COULD SLAP ME IN THE FACE I'D STILL TURN THE OTHER CHEEK/YOU COULD STAB ME IN THE BACK I'D STILL WANT YOU AT MY FEET/'CUZ I LOVED YOU WAY MORE THEN I COULD ANYTHING ELSE/LOVED YOU ENOUGH TO MAKE YOU IN THE IMAGE OF MYSELF/SEE THESE HOLES IN MY HANDS THEY'RE SO YOU COULD FEEL ALIVE/I CAME SO YOU COULD HAVE LIFE AND NOT JUST MERELY SURVIVE
