Dagnabbit I got the same bad habits my dad had as a lad
I get mad at myself sittin' in the back of cab
Feelin' wack as a whip on the back of a slave
On a ship back in the days
At times wakin' up is a slap in the face
For the passion of one who's flesh was torn away
By the cat-o-nine tails and pierced by one's spear
And three nails has saved my soul
But there's still times I get weak
And there's still times I get beat
And sometimes I write rhymes way too ill to repeat
And I don't want to be another hypocrite on the beat
But sometimes when the sun shines I wish I could sleep
It away when today I woke up with some strength
Counted a couple of blessings and stepped out in the street
And the sweet smell of victory put my mind at ease
And the breeze told the trees to whisper something to me
And they told me don't worry I told the devil you was with me

Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong
Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong

Those who trespass allow me to forgive
I wasn't dealt the hand they got lives they got to live
Besides they don't answer to me I'm not you
And we've all made mistakes and known not what to do
Is true, see if I hurt you that hurts me
I'm not entitled to the lords tender mercy
And til I drop down on my knees and say please
Put me into your solution and free me of this disease
I won't make it one more step unless you take
This load I tote with my soul I'll just break
And won't wait one second longer than I must
Or bond with anyone stronger than this trust
So the only thing to do is lean on you
And not be led astray by what the demon do.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory
Amen

Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong
Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong

Don't try to be the best man, be the best that you can
Cause number one ain't nothing but the opinion of man
And man loves death, hate, crime and pain
His kids are into theft, long lines of 'caine
Insanity, profanity, ecstasy and blasphemy
But as for me I'm just tryin' to maintain
And it's a damn shame our brains have been trained
To be crazy and lazy, scared to make change
In these hard times I try to be a role model
But I ain't gonna lie y'all I still battle the bottle
And that's my biggest struggle I ain't the one to follow
Sometimes I get the urge to leave a twelve pack hollow
Just writing some inner-sentiments
Ain't none of us innocent from mansions and tenements
Whether male or feminine
All of us are guilty of showing a little ignorance
Being resentful, envious and belligerent
One day maybe we can figure it out
But 'til then I guess I'll just pull this cigarette out
And pull up a chair and open a brew
Sit down on the porch and do what I do cuz

Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong
Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so
Little ones to him belong they are weak but he is strong
