Wasted life

Oh I feel Youíve given up
As I drink from this bitter cup.
What are my sins that are so great
Do You really see me in hate?

I thought Jesus had paid the price
I thought He had made it nice.
All my life I walk in fire
Tattered clothes were my attire.

I thought Jesus was the cure
So You would see me whole and pure.
I tried to turn from my sinful ways
From the imperfections of my days.

But I keep getting cast down
I am a heap here on the ground.
Iím plagued with sinfulness
Into hell I have digressed.

Of my life I've made a mess
My sinful ways I now confess.
Helping others I will quit
This bitter herb on which I bit.

Reaching out I guess is wrong
That's what I thought of all along.
This is a dream thatís made of wood
Iíve been evil never good.

Iím being burned up in the fire
Sinking deep into the mire.
Its been a waste this pain and strife
Iím just a loser in this life.

This dreadful life for which Iíve live
I offer up and freely give.
I just thought I was being kind
I have been fooled and am so blind.

Iíll say no more Iím incomplete
I throw myself down at Your feet.
I have lost all that Youíve give
Now I donít deserve to live.
