Great Disgrace

All That I Need
What else can I do but be myself
I cannot just copy somebody else
I have to rely on what the Lord has given me

But I often I think this life is hard
I try to pretend that I am smart
And now I am falling hard and no one will rescue me

Help me to see the path that I have walked
Help me to learn the voice that leads me to the dark
Help me to leave my foolish pride behind admitting my mistakes
And humbly bow before your throne in great disgrace

Have mercy, Lord, on me
I bow down at your feet and humbly plea
I didn’t listen.  I wasn’t wise
I could not see the enemy’s eyes
Have mercy, precious Lord, on me

Now I know what to do with this mess
I come to you now and I confess
Greed and alluring talk of grandeur led me astray

I will walk out of my despair
I will come up and small the air
You shine a light along my path to show me the way

You help me see the path that I have walked
You help me learn the voice that led me to the dark
You help me leave my foolish pride behind and look on up ahead
There you await with open arms and calm my fear

Have mercy, Lord on me
I bow down at your feet and humbly plea
I will now listen.  I’ll open my eyes
I will turn to you to help me be wise
Have mercy, precious Lord, on me
