This life is bearing hard down on you, always coming down to the wire
Don't you know that you were never meant to exist without Him?
Can't you see - nothing happens but by His hand; never truly alone
Don't you know - can't exist on your own; only skin and bone
On your own, you would die. Your Creator gives you life
Don't you know all your have in this life came from your Lord God in love?
All you have, all your life, you owe to Him
His very breath gave you life in your bones; without Him you are but nothing

You must tell your Father what you need, always coming to Him in prayer
If you haven't done that yet, you must go to your knees
Pray, "Heavenly Father, Lord above, I don't want to be alone
Put your Spirit in me Lord, I repent, want to live as I should
All your words, your commands come from love
All I have came from you out of love, no reason to give it, no!
I want to live as You meant, as your child
Jesus Christ paved the way; no more sin can separate me from your love!"

Supplication of the destitute, the prayers of humanity
You must realize you can't save yourself, no strong enough, no
All humanity is the destitute, in need of the Lord
Didn't want to see His creation burn in Hell
But for sin there's a price that must be paid; it's in His nature, justice must be served
But He said, "You needn't pay, I will pay,
For your sin, Christ has died; your second chance - Justice has been served and you do not have to burn!"

I could not accept Your love for me; unrepentant sin held me down -
Too much pride, not enough knowledge about how You sacrificed for me
Nailed hand and foot, pierced side, crown of thorns, scourged human body
Suffered death undeserving, in my place; all my sins erased

Though He was without sin, for your soul, He suffered death
Any sin in your life caused His death - Can you live with that on your conscience?
But He said, "I forgive; it's over now
Take my hand. From this death, I did rise - I'll take you with me if you come."
