why me lyrics – kris kristofferson

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 lovin’ you or the kindness you’ve shown

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

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

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