You got a minute for Yo' son Father, I need to talk
I'm so tired of tryin' to run Father, let's take a walk
I'm so sorry for what I done Father, it ain't my fault
But the devil's been on my back lately, he's like a hawk

You never give us more than we can handle
But it's gettin' hard and I'm a strong individual
But I need You God, lot of things that I used to
I don't wanna run the streets like I used to

I know I'm gonna speak the word for You one day
Up in there like, 'Hallelujah' on Sunday
I thank You Lord for the blessings that You gave me
And for my life with the blessings You have saved me

And for my wife You have carried me enough times
And that's the truth
Married me to rough times, throughout my youth
And through it all I saw that You was still with me
I was that one lost sheep and You was comin' to get me

Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like

I look at life a little different now, since You hugged me
And I always loved my peoples, but now they love me
Thank You for the love Lord, we praise Ya
Jacob's descendants, from Africa to Asia

Pleadin' the blood of Christ over our life
Wrong or right, just help us make it through
The night and we'll shout Yo' name in times of need
And times of joy and when we bleed

And when we are overcome with greed
You ain't gon' half to tell me twice, I'ma take heed
And because of what You've given me, I know You'll deliver me
And I won't drown no matter how deep the river be

You are the strength I never knew I had
Kept the heart good when they told me it was bad
All praises due to Ya, that's why I had to dedicate
Somethin' new to Ya, thank You Father

Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like

I never knew a love like, this before
Messin' with the thug life I missed it all
You opened the doors and let me in
I'm down for the 'cause so let's begin

Prayers that You give to me I give to them
Same way You live in me I live in them
Life is a blessing now, You got me smilin'
From inside of my heart, when inside it was dark

And it doesn't rain anymore
Only sunshine, no pain anymore, I really love my
You washed away the tears with the fears
I'm happier than I've ever been in my life, the whole thirty years

You know that one day I'll speak the word
You know that when I do I will be heard
You know that You gave me a permanent smile
And you know this Father because I'm Yo' child, what?

Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like

Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
Lord You got me like, Your love got me like
