why me lord? lyrics – mickey gilley

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
that was worth loving you for the kindness you’ve shown.

lord help me jesus i’ve wasted it
so help me jesus, i know what i am
now that i know that i’ve needed you
so help me jesus my soul’s in your hands.

— instrumental —

try me lord, if you think there’s a way
i can try to repay, all that 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 help me jesus i’ve wasted it
so help me jesus, i know what i am
now that i know that i’ve needed you
so help me jesus my soul’s in your hands.

jesus my soul’s in your hands.
