"YOU NEVER HELD IT AGAINST ME"

Verse 1
If I could only let go of what I know I don't need;
If I could only uproot that bitter little seed;
If I would only forget and leave my past behind,
I would trust in my God, and it would stabilize my mind.

Verse 2
If I would pray in my heart before I uttered a word;
If I'd even pray out loud, I'd probably sound less absurd.
I'm glad You don't expect me to be perfectly good;
And I know You'll help me 'cause You said You would.

Chorus
I can do everything and anything I need to do through You.
You're the Someone I can always count on coming to.
I know I haven't always been the kind of man You've wanted me to be,
But You're my Jesus; You've never held it against me.
Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
I know I've tried on my own to mend all the wrongs;
I know I've wasted my time, and now my soul longs
To draw closer to You, it's so simple that way.
Rather than figure it out, I'd just as soon obey.

Repeat Chorus
Lead: -- four times
Repeat Chorus [a cappella]
Bridge
You know I need You.
You know I can't make it one day without You.
You know I know I need You.
I know I can't make it one single day without You.
