Such a bonehead I must be;
I live for me and wind up dead;
Iím tired of my selfish spree;
Iíll just be another instead;
Iíve lived for me with nothing to show;
I can tell by my checkbook;
Iíve ran to me; nowhere I go,
Now my lifeís got a lonely look;
Iíve decided to quit being me,
I have put in my resignation;
I have turned to what sets free;
Live for the Lord of my salvation;
Being me donít pay me much;
Thereís just no great dividend;
Canít get rich being as such,
Soís here where it has to end;
So, dear Jesus, be in my stead,
And take the life that Iíve messed up;
All I needís Your living bread,
Make my heart Your joyful cup;
What is that sickly stench I smell?
It smells like death, only warmed over,
Smells like something sent from hell;
Oh, God itís me, I need to change over;
"...reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts."--Romans 6:10-11
"But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts."--Romans 13:14
