I don't know the reason I've been here so long
my life has been nothing, but one long, sad song.
God must have something that I've yet to do
because if I had my way this life would be through.
I've rambled and stumbled down life's highway
and I've always failed trying to do it my way.
Since my Savior touched me life's not been the same
and He knows I'm tired of this sinful life's game.
I yearn to be with Him and sit at His feet
be where there's no sorrow, no pain or defeat.
Sing with the angels giving God praise
listen to Lazarus tell how he was raised.
Each day I am praying for His will to be done
that this world will repent and believe on God's Son.
Although I am weary I'll do what I can
for the Glory of God and salvation of man.
