why me lord lyrics – elvis presley

why me lord? what have i ever done
to deserve even one of the pleasures i’ve known
tell me lord what did i ever do to deserve loving you?
and the kindness, you’ve shown

lord heavenly jesus, i’m wasted and
so help me jesus, i know what i am
now that i know that i needed you so
help me jesus, my soul’s in your hands

try me lord, if you think there’s a way
i can ever repay, all i’ve taken from you
maybe lord, i can show someone else
what i’ve been through myself
on my way back to you

lord heavenly jesus, i praise him
so help me jesus, i know what i am, oh yes
now that i know that i needed you so
help me jesus, my soul’s in your hands
jesus, my soul’s in your hands
