"Sweet Providence" as written by and Marti Lynn Dodson Green Brian Lovely....
I’ve been burning bridges left and right
Losing wars I should not fight
When I thought I was drifting we were bound

Cause your mercy is misunderstood
Where I see flaws you see the good
And lost is just a step away from found

All the damage I have done and left behind
Could you forgive me one more time?

Here I am a broken man
Under water seeking land
Trying to claw my way back to my innocence
Situation critical
Destination where you are
Cause you’re the only thing that’s making any sense
Oh sweet providence

Well I got crossed between the guilt and shame
Won’t ask for help won’t share the blame
Convinced myself I fell from grace with you

Ran a thousand miles to just to get nowhere
I felt my heart was hope impaired
Could not find the light to climb into

All the wreckage that I’ve caused and left behind
Still you forgive me one more time

Here I am a broken man
Under water seeking land
Trying to claw my way back to my innocence
Situation critical
Destination where you are
Cause you’re the only thing left making any sense
Oh come sweet providence

Love is patient
Love bears all things
Hopes, believes, endures

All the troubles that I couldn’t leave behind
I’ve been forgiven all this time

Here I am a broken man
Under water seeking land
Trying to claw my way back to my innocence
Situation critical
Destination where you are
Cause you’re the only thing that’s making any sense
Oh come sweet providence
