Why Me Lord Lyrics

by 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
