Lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
That I'm down on all on my knees
Lord, have mercy on me, please

Ooh, yeah
Jesus, I must confess
That in all my loneliness
I've forsaken and I've sinned
Leaving fragments of a man so broken

I could tell You what I've done
Or should I tell You where I went wrong?
Well, the more that I start to play
My deceitful, evil ways keep growing stronger by the day

Oh, Lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord, have mercy on me please

Mother Mary full of Grace
In my weakness, I've lost faith
I've been careless and I have been warned
And the devil inside me is torn
God bless the men that I have scorned

Oh, Lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord, have mercy on me, please

Ohh, yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah, oh
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, ohh

So don't let me fool around no more
Send Your Angels down to guide me through that door
Well, I've gone and confessed my regrets
And I pray I'm not held in contempt
I'm so lost, and I need You to help me repent

Oh, Lord, have mercy on my soul
Oh, I'm begging, I'm pleading, I'm needing
I want You to know, yeah
So I'm down upon my knees, oh Lord, I need forgiveness
I need forgiveness from You
