Trumpet intro

Lord, you know that I want to follow you
And do the things that I know you want me to.
And every day of every week,
I try to watch the things I do and speak.
The spirit's willing but the flesh can be so weak.

Lord, you know that I'm just a mortal man.
All I can do is just to be the man I am.
Sometimes I'm not the person I should be.
And there are times that I'm not proud of me.
Although I always try to do the best I can.

But through the times when the devil got the best of me
And I was lost in sin,
And you could have turned your back on me.
You were always there to show your faith in me
And take me back again.
And show me all that I could be.

Lord, I know I have a long, long way to go
And I'm not worthy of the blessings that you show.
And though I let you down every day,
You keep on smiling on me anyway.
And let me feel the greatest love I'll ever know.

Lord, I know I have a long, long way to go

And let me feel the greatest love I'll ever know.

And though I let you down every day,
You keep on smiling on me anyway.
And let me feel the greatest love I'll ever know.
