  •  
  • REF:      FORGIVE ME LORD, ALL THE WRONGS I DID TO YOU

                FORGIVE ME LORD, WHEN I SAID ďNO WAYĒ

                I TRIED SO HARD TO RELY ON MY OWN STRENGTH

                BUT IN THE END I CANNOT GO ON, IíM SORRY

     

    I TURNED AWAY WHEN YOU BECKONED TO ME

    I DID NOT WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU NEEDED ME

    BUT NOW I KNOW THAT YOU CARE FOR MY LIFE

    AND LOVE ME ENDLESSLY, IíM SORRY LORD

     

    YOU GAVE ME ALL THAT I NEEDED AND MORE

    AND STILL I ASKED FOR MORE, NEVER SATISFIED

    IíVE SPENT IT ALL ON MY OWN SELFISH DREAMS

    IíVE WASTED ALL YOUR GIFTS, IíM SORRY LORD

    REF:

    I HAD A HOME THAT WAS WARM AND SECURE

    WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO WERE ALWAYS THERE

    I FAILED TO SEE HOW MUCH THEY ALL LOVED ME

    AND NOW IíM ALL ALONE, IíM SORRY LORD

     

    I DID NOT MEAN TO REJECT YOUR EMBRACE

    PLEASE TAKE ME BACK MY LORD, I WILL BE YOUR SLAVE

    IíLL FOLLOW YOU FOR AS LONG AS I LIVE

    I GIVE MY LIFE TO YOU, IíM SORRY LORD
