Here I come pleading again Lord.
Begging for Your forgiveness once more.
I made You a promise this morning,
But I messed up, just like times before.
I promised to try and do better
With things that I say and I do.
But as soon as I get around others,
I've broken my promise to You.
On my way into work I face traffic.
Soon as somebody makes a wrong move,
I open my mouth and words come out,
That I know you would never approve.
I try to steer clear of the gossip.
I know passing judgment is wrong.
When someone ask for my opinion,
Seems my tongue has a mind of it's own.
Lord, I'm not here just giving excuses.
I know that I'm fully to blame.
I'm just asking you to be patient.
Help me these bad habits to change.
I know that I've caused You concern Lord.
I've been working on this for awhile.
Still, I know when I ask I'm forgiven.
I know you still call me Your child.
