Song-lyrics Sunday 6/5/11


This week is one of my absolute favorites. Two music legends, Elvis and J.D. Sumner, singing “Why Me, Lord?” which was written by Kris Kristofferson. I think everyone knows Elvis, but if you’re not familiar with J.D. Sumner he is a well-known gospel bass singer. One of the lowest voices ever recorded. Be sure to check out the video to hear the song, and see some pics of the great friends, Elvis and J.D.

Why Me Lord?
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I’ve known
Tell me Lord
What did I ever do
To deserve loving you
And the kindness you’ve shown

Lord, Help Me Jesus
I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am
Now that I know that
I needed you so
Help me Jesus
My soul’s in your hands

Try me Lord
If you think there’s a way
I can ever repay
All I’ve taken from you
Maybe Lord
I can show someone else
What I’ve been through myself
On my way back to you

Lord, Help Me Jesus
I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus
I know what I am
Now that I know that
I needed you so
Help me Jesus
My soul’s in your hands

Jesus
My soul’s in your hands
