I’ve been angry,
Hurt, and broken;
Been cut and scarred,
These wounds remain open
I feel as if,
You have betrayed me;
I’ve taken all these burdens,
While they are free
I gave everything of myself,
Put their problems before my own;
Yet it suddenly fell apart,
Leaving me ignored and alone…

[Chorus]
I should have listened to You,
Because You knew right from the start;
That though I only tried to help,
I’d end with a broken heart
Why am I in this place?
Of selfishness, doubt, and fear;
I come to You on my hands and knees,
Oh, Lord, please, I beg,
Please be near…

You have taught me to love,
And forgive those who do me wrong;
But Oh, God, I need deliverance,
For I’ve been bitter far too long
Now I realize,
It is not my place;
To try and control my life,
From minute, to hour, to day
Please heal my heart,
And the contempt I hold inside;
I need your redemption this moment,
And for you to be by my side,
Take control of my life. . .

[Chorus]





I should have listened to You,
Because You knew right from the start;
That though I only tried to help,
I’d end with a broken heart
Why am I in this place?
Of selfishness, doubt, and fear;
I come to You on my hands and knees,
Oh, Lord, please, I beg,
Please be near…

I realize the time is near
When you will reveal yourself to us
But oh, how much more can I endure?
I am trying so hard to trust
It seems as if though
I come up short often
My feet slip and I fall
My heart must be softened
Cast away these things I hate
Lift the burdens from my chest
Give me hope for the crown of life
To receive once I’ve stood the test

[Chorus]

It will all be worth it in the end
They will struggle to survive
But I will have eternal life
Though I confront
The evil faces of this earth
You have chosen me
From birth
I was a speck of dirt
Until You washed me
With Your hand
Chosen from a beach
With numerous specks of sand
I will sing all of my days
Give thanks, and give You praise
For on this day
I tower over my enemies,
And received Your grace
