Aaron Leatherdale & Shelby Anthony
Have mercy on me because I've been wrestling with sin Feeling tested again, I flunked the exam, a fallen man Stressed over sin, this mess that I'm in, this cycle has been Many years, many tears shed/ My decisions have led to this moment Now I have to face it, which I could erase it instead....a person is dead Because of me, because I gazed for too long from the rooftop I tried to stop, but the bait was too strong/ I choose wrong, even though I know right The joy of my salvation is gone, the darkness has come, there's no light In sin I was conceived, Adam & Eve were both deceived My family tree, their blood is pumping through my veins & arteries/ It's hard for me, to depart from the sinful nature, it's part of me I've acted wickedly, despicably, iniquities are in me but I'm sick the consequences, my conscience is quenched I bring my sacrifices, forgive me of my vices/ CHORUS When I swept my sin under the rug, my life was gone like a drug I groaned, my bones wasted away, sluggish Face the day, I couldn't! Like the summer heat & humidity My strength was spent, I didn't repent, because of my stupidity/ My proclivity for lust, my character flaws caused it I tried to hide my sin in the closet, I tried to hide my tracks My iniquities were eating at me, tossing & turning, I couldn't sleep Dragging my feet, waving a white flag of defeat/ Bad for my health, I hated myself, having flashbacks A lonely road, my shoulders carried the weight of load The blood of an innocent man was spilt, waves of guilt were crashing Over me like a tsunami, Your hand was heavy on me/ Despise me not, a broken spirit I got I was disciplined & chastened, I was rebuked by Nathan Blessed is the man with a clean slate, sin has been acknowledged Mercy has been given, he's forgiven/
