Confession is good for the soul they say
Well now it's my turn
I'm willing to share all I've learned someday
But some days not willing to learn
I don't always like to be told
What's right from wrong
I'm selfish sometimes when I don't want to be
How can you stand me?
Oh Lord, why do you hold on?
I'm always talking about the way you blessed me, oh yeah
I'm always singing about how good you are
But I don't always tell
That it's despite of myself
You know I haven't been good
Some days I don't do what I should
Yet your mercy somehow endures.
There's no other love that compares to yours
It's hard to understand.
How you never repay me what I deserve
I think you that you're not like man
(Not like man)
See sometimes I desire to give hurt for hurt
Yet I know that's not like you
Yet this old flesh of mine tries to win every time
I'm grateful your word is true
You faithfully see me through
Your mercy (Is good and it's kind)
Your mercy (Is brand new everyday)
Your mercy (Is ever lasting)
