WHY ME, LORD?

What have I ever done
To deserve God’s own Son
Or 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 hand

REPEAT

Try me, Lord, if you think there’s a way
That I can repay
ll I’ve taken from you

Maybe, Lord, I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you

**************

As the Savior was walking up Calvary’s hill
All the birds hushed their singing and the lilies stood still
All the flowers of the field bow their lovely heads
As the Savior to Calvary was led

Then they nailed his hands and they pierced his precious side,
All the pain was so great that tears filled his eyes
Yet he spoke, he spoke not a word until the last breath he drew
Then said Father forgive them, For they know not what they do

Tell me why, tell me why
Did Jesus die on Calvary
Tell me why did he suffer such agony
For God so loved this old world that he gave his only Son
That is why Jesus died for you and me
