Lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
That I'm down on my knees
Lord, have mercy on me, please

Oh yeah

Jesus, I must confess
That in all my loneliness
I've forsaken, and I've sinned
Leaving fragments of a man so broken

I could tell you what I've done
Or should I tell you where I went wrong?

Well, the more that I start to play
My deceitful, evil ways
Keep on growing stronger by the day

Oh lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked a sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord, have mercy on me, please

Mother Mary full of grace
In my weakness, I've lost faith
I've been careless, and I have been warned
And the devil inside me is torn
God bless the men that I have scorned

Oh lord, have mercy on my soul
For I have walked the sinful road
So I'm gonna get down on my knees
Beg forgiveness to help set me free
Lord have mercy on me, please

Whoa, whoa, yeah, yeah
Whoa, yeah, yeah, oh, oh
Oh-oh yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

So don't let me fool around no more
Send your angels down to guide me through that door
Well, I've gone and confessed my regrets
And I pray I'm not held in contempt
I'm so lost, and I need you to help me repent

Oh lord, have mercy on my soul
Oh, I'm begging, I'm pleading, I'm needing
I want you to know
So I'm down upon my knees
Oh lord, I need forgiveness
I need forgiveness from you
