Please, Lord, please forgive me.  All I want’s Your love.
Please, Lord, show me mercy, sent down from above.

Yes, Lord, I’ve been lazy; I didn’t do my part.
Yes, Lord, I’ve felt hatred, with murder in my heart.

Yes, Sir, I’ve done wrong.  I’ve had way too much pride.
Yes, Sir, I’m a sinner.  I’ve stolen and I’ve lied.

Yes, Lord, I’ve heard of Jesus.  I knew about the cross.
Yes, Lord, I knew I was a sinner.  But didn’t think I was lost.

Please, Lord, I’ll live better; please don’t say it’s too late.
Have mercy, Lord! I promise no longer to wait.
