PATRISTIC
Please, Lord, 
I'm not worth it. 

Not worth 
the pain 
the stain 
the strife 

Not worth 
the tears 
the fears 
or Your own life 

The hour has come 
for You to go

But please, 
don't do it 
for me 

I am the one 
who nails You 
the one 
who bails on You 
the one 
who denies 

I am the one 
who cheats on You 
the one 
who beats on You 
the one 
who lies 

And still You stop me 

And still You say 

You are worth 
the agony 
and worth 
the Way to Calvary 
and worth 
putting my life on the line 

Because 
you are good 
because 
you withstood 
because 
you are Mine.
