Lord why would you want me?
Lord I have sinned, and done many things wrong
I lay before you as dirt, on the floor of my home
I spoke bad words, and lied every now and then
I been down for so long, I feel this is the end.
I never been to jail, but yet I am not free
Tell me Lord, why would you want me?
Lord I feel that I am not worthy to be call your child
I get so mean sometimes, it hurt me to smile
While you are looking down Lord, tell me what you see,
And why would you want an old sinner like me?
The Lord replied;
I made you in my own image,
I made you to be a man
I made you to rule over beast,
and throughout the land.
I sent my son Jesus down to die on the cross
To save an old sinner like you that was lost.
Come to me, and let me give you rest
Let me clean those filthy rags, and
Make you at your best
I don’t care who you are, or what you now see
By the blood of Jesus, you are now set free.
When I look down I see an Angel to be
And you ask; Lord why do you want me?
I am your father, and you are my child
Let me help you, and give you a new smile.
There is eternal life, and everlasting peace
In heaven you rejoice, are happy and free.
My child you are strong, and no longer weak,
You now have the answer you so faithfully seek.
