why me lyrics – willie nelson

why me, lord?
what i have 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?
or 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 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
now that i know that
i’ve needed you, so help me jesus, my soul’s in your hand
jesus, my soul’s in your hand
