Lyrics:

Lord Jesus

Lord Jesus, where were you last night when I called?
I was desperate, and wretched, forsaken and cold
I tried hard to hear you, but it all was in vain
Did you find me too proud, Lord, and in need of this pain?
Did you find me too proud, Lord, and in need of this pain?

Chorus:
To clean me, and heal me of guilt from my sins
Let me bathe in your waters and dry in your wind
Let me bathe in your waters and dry in your wind

Now I know when I'm honest that my troubles are small
But sometimes something less causes good men to fall
I've had heartaches aplenty, and I guess there'll more
'Cause the bottle's near empty, so it's your song now, Lord
'Cause the bottle's near empty, so it's your song now, Lord

Chorus

Now I've tried to be patient, but I'm just not that kind
And like Thomas the Doubter I'd rather be blind
Than to see what's before me and to find out the cost
Of this life I've been leading, and the love that I've lost
Of this life I've been leading, and the love that I've lost

Chorus
